A nervy night for The Fox team knowing that securing two legs would clinch the Division 1 title. Although the evening started well enough with Lorin (legs 1 & 4 swapped) securing the first of the two required points, the rest of the evening proved to be far tougher. But in the third leg of the evening, 'Steady Stevie Ainscombe' (HB to The Fox team!) made the difference.
In the end The Fox Inn secured a good 3-2 victory but there were plenty of creditable performances from The Cobblers. Of particular note was Ben Foster who played some superb shots and was rightly rewarded with the win in his leg.
The scores were as follows:
Al Humphries 2,090 vs Stephen C 1,270 Ben Foster 2,170 vs Ian C 1,750 Matt Brunt 1,380 vs Stevie A 2,810 Steve Foster BP vs Lorin C 6,220 Iestyn Pocock 1,550 vs Simon C 3,340
My hearty congratulations to The Fox Inn who are worthy champions. The team has been determined this year and I am delighted that we have managed to see it through. As a certain Mr F would say........'Vey Pwoud!'
