Notes on Finals and Presentation Night

 

This took place on 3rd May at the Carr Lane Club and a disappointing attendance, possibly due to the previous day's Bank Holiday, saw an exciting end to the Season with close finishes to the three Finals. Apostles and Rowdies tied after the 8 Rounds but the popular Pete Hardisty led his men home in the extra Round. Pete, who is a peerless player, is also an excellent setter. He told me that, after many years, he had at last won his first Knockout trophy. The Individual KO was no less nail- biting when another very popular player, Dennis Brown, pipped his equally brilliant team mate Alan Bentley, by just    16 to 15. The Pairs Handicap was taken by two players from the new Second Division champions Swats. Mal White and Mike Mahoney are a very competent, long-standing combination and they had a mere 2 points to spare after an interesting joust with Andy Alcock and Steve Pycroft, who was standing in for the holidaying Pete Sinclair.

 

The Trophies were presented by our Guest Isobelle Heward who said she was grateful for being invited and impressed with the level of knowledge displayed in the competitions.
