LAST CHANCE CUP 2018
The Club’s programme of internal competitions was completed at the weekend when 28 members took part in the inaugural staging of the Last Chance Cup. This is an additional random pairs competition, introduced to conclude the season, as a result of requests from members.
It was fitting that this new event produced two first-time winners of Hesketh Arms competitions in Norma White and Wayne Graham, who had played well all afternoon in defeating Jason Chapman and Norman Simpson (21-6), Bill Bloor and Sue Wignall (21-14) and Terry Corfield and John Hughes (21-15) to reach the final. Their opponents in the decider were the strong pairing of Noel Morgans and Tony Wakefield who had a marathon battle in their semi-final before overcoming Jim Halsall and Lynne Smith 21-20.
In the final, Norma and Wayne got off to a flying start with a three at the first end and were never behind as they established a 20-13 lead. Despite a three for Noel and Tony at the 20th end to close the gap to 16-20, Norma and Wayne were able to score the single chalk required to become the first winners of the Last Chance Cup
The Plate competition for first round losers was won by Mike Milne and Bill Nowell with a 15-10 win in the final against Sue Andersen and Pat Miller.
THE GREEN WILL CLOSE FOR WINTER ON THE 2nd OF OCTOBER
