With a target of 379 needed to win, the B Team—all 3 really playing their best of the season, had won the Final with 2 matches to go, allowing everyone to relax a little. The Final was almost decided in the opening 3 matches and despite Sammy’s efforts the B Team players were not likely to lose such a commanding lead.
Individual scores saw Dale finishing (with handicap taken into the reckoning) on -32, Sammy on +5, and George on -32.
B Team – Tom +22, George +19 and Matthew +18
Congratulations to both teams for an excellent final, very good to watch, with great sportsmanship.
If you missed it, you missed a treat, only the 2nd time the final has been an all Fishers match, and maybe the last, but hopefully not.
Thanks to all supporters, and helpers over the season, the best ever for the teams.
Last weekend saw Sammy and Theo Kelly and Luke Furlong play in the 2* event in Blackpool, against some of the best players in the country.
All 3 did well, with Theo taking the “plate” final win in the U13 competition.
