Senior Individual Merit Qualifier 1: Wayne Phillips
Name: Wayne Phillips Club: Hanwood Premier League Record: 11 out of 16 Qualification: Semi Finalist Wayne Phillips is a very experienced county and competition player, having won many competitions like the Pontesbury Open and winning over 100 caps for our county. He has also played in the All England, as recently as 2013, and showed in his Quarter Final comeback that he will fight for everything. He has enjoyed a good season so far for Hanwood winning 11 out of his 16 games. He faces Neil Bithell first of all, who is from the host county and has plenty of experience too. So it will be a tough opener for Wayne, with a few other big names in his Quarter too.
