Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators had three representatives at the British Individual Championships weekend in the Midlands.

Harley Hamill had his first taste of the Open Championship and scored eight points in each of his semi-finals at Birmingham and East Park, the highlight being a heat win.

Glyn Morgan contested the Over-50s Final and finished joint 10th with 11 points. He also had a heat win but a shed chain in a later heat handicapped his score. Owen Wells battled through tough qualifying heats in the Under-16 Championship but just fell short of the qualifying places in the final, ending up as second reserve.

The matches were all good experience for the Hawks who will be back in action this weekend. Glyn Morgan faces a long trip to Glasgow on Saturday in the Eurovets Grand Prix series but will be back next day to join Hamill and Wells in the South East & Eastern League match with Norwich Stars (Memorial Playing Field, 2pm).
