News from Suffolk, this account of their season's honours is on their website:
Finals Night (Singles and Doubles) A very successful Finals Night was held at The Bay Horse where around 50 players from the league gathered to see the trophy presentations. The evening commenced with the semi-finals of the singles K.O. where Luke Cole-Watts and Dave Lillie beat Dennis Watts and Steve Hale respectively. The final was a good game but Dave Lillie came through to win 1620-680. The doubles saw Dennis Watts & Chris Cass beat Melvin Tilbury & Graham Rolfe 1430-1230. Landlord Chris Drake then presented the trophies to all the winning teams and individuals over the season.
K.O. Cup Final Mauldons Adders gained their first team success when they beat The Saracens 4-3 at The Thatchers Arms. Bay Horse A (34 pts) are League Champions with Hadleigh Eight Bells (28 pts) the runners-up.
Landlords Cup & Ladies K.O. Cup There was an excellent turnout for both events held at the Brewery Tap. Seven Landlords or their representatives contested the Landlords Cup and eight ladies took part in the Ladies K.O. Bob Hedley (Cornard Five Bells) was victorious in the Landlords Cup defeating Neil Thompson (Stanningfield Red House) in the final and Tracy Reeve (Edwardstone Wild Horses) regained her Ladies title beating Michaela Andrews (The Bay Horse).
So congratulations are in order to both our Forum members (Daveuk1 and LC-W) who contested the Mens Singles Final !
It was a good year for our pub the Brewery Tap, with the Adders Taking the team KO cup, Dennis Watts and Chris Cass the doubles KO and with Luke and myself in the final of the singles it meant the guarantee of another trophy.
All of the games and indeed the night were completed in a very friendly atmosphere and everyone appreciated the free and very tasty BBQ provided by the Bay Horse.
It was indeed the team final on Thursday night, the same night as England lost again.
We, the Bay Horse A were playing the Saracens Head who had walked away with the league title. Unlike England we started well and stormed into a three nil lead, The Saracens pulled a couple of games back before we put it beyond their reach and the final score ended up 4-3 to the Bay.
I would write an in depth report but due to the amount of beer consumed during the enjoyable evening I don't remember too much. I think being in the pub at 7pm and not leaving until early hours the next morning took it's toll on me.
Clive you are so right, from left to right. Me, Jason Lawrence, Colin Norledge, Alasdair Carnegie and Jeremy Fry all from the the Bay Horse A opps I cant remember the other persons name, he was the landlord from the pub.
Missing from the picture are Steve Hale and Brendon Hoare who were both working that night so unable to attend.
Jeremy Fry's face is a good one to remember as he's the M.D. of Specflue who sponsor the 4 pin open.
BTW just as the picture was being taken it was a "who the fleck has farted" moment and looking at Colin you would think butter wouldn't melt in his mouth
