Congratulations to Graeme who is this year’s club champion.
20 players took part in 6 rounds over 2 weeks. After week 1 Ray Evans and Joe Wright held the lead with 3 points, followed by Charlie Grainger, Graeme Jennings, Brian Hayward, John Huthwaite and Michael Naylor on 2.
Ray and Mike were unable to attend week 2 so this set up a exciting battle between the others. Graeme stormed through, winning all 3 games, to take the title, beating Joe in the final round. Both he and Charlie drew with Mike Barnes and John Swain. Final scores:
5: Graeme Jennings
4: Joe Wright, Brian Hayward, Michael Barnes

3: Derek Pavis, John Huthwaite
2.5: Richard Edwards
