Welcome to Pat's weekly column

Drinkwater and Wingfield  win Tudor Pairs. 

Last Tuesday saw the ¼ finals of the Tudor Pairs, the first ¼ saw in my opinion joint favourites for the competition Mark Furber and Dave Williams take on section threes husband and wife pairing John and Maggie Coats and what an upset it turned out to be with John and Maggie running out the winners 21-17. The second ¼ saw George Perris and Ken Plumpton take on Joe Tomkinson and Karl Rogers the latter winning 21-16. The third ¼ paired team colleagues Connell Redmond and Adele Maddison against Paul Drinkwater and Phil Wingfield, Paul and Phil won the game 21-16. The last ¼ saw last seasons winners Neal Ocego and Chris Price take on Peter Goodwin and Terry  Evans Neal and Chris going through 21-03.

Thursday night saw the weather  not too good for the players with constant rain but the green held up very well and the semis got under way with the first game John and Maggie Coats taking on Joe Tomkinson and Karl Rogers, it looked like the occasion got to John and Maggie Joe and Karl running out the winners 21-06. The second semi produced a fantastic game between Paul/Phil and Neal/Chris with Paul and Phil winning the game 21-20. The final paired four players from Hazel Pear, Joe/Karl against Paul/Phil.  Paul and Phil raced into an early 7-0 lead after six ends but it wasnt long before Joe and Karl took the lead 21-10 with some great bowling but Paul and Phil raised their game and peeled off 7 chalks to lead 17-12 and going on to win 21-17.
