PRICE & OCEGO WIN TUDOR PAIRS.
Last Thursday saw the finals of the Tudor Pairs Trophy held at War Memorial BC with Chris Price and Neal Ocego the 2012 winners picking up the trophy once again. The first semi saw homester’s George Aspinwall and Maurice Hambleton take on Dave Williams and Mark Furber and it wasn’t long before Williams and Furber showed their class taking a 10-1 lead after just six ends. George and Maurice failed to take advantage of their green knowledge and it was Dave and Mark running out the winners 21-07. The second semi saw father and son pairing Peter Hollett Snr and Peter Hollett Jnr take on Chris Price and Neal Ocego. The Hollett’s took a double on the first end and that was their race run, after eleven ends the game was over Chris and Neal running out the winners 21-02. The final paired Pavilions “A” team colleagues against each other and the game started with the jack swapping hands and by the 7th end it was four across. However Mark upped his game and started leading with some accuracy and they raced into an eleven four lead by the eleventh end. Chris and Neal had a discussion which meant Neal would lead and what a great transformation it worked out to be. The Robot (my nickname for Neal) imposed himself onto the game, and with a machine like rhythm peppering the jack with his leads and well assisted by Chris romped into a 19-11 lead before the jack changed hands. Dave and Mark could only add three further chalks before Neal and Chris made a double to win 21-14. League Secretary Pat Crowe thanked War Memorial for the use of their facilities the spectators for their attendance and in particular the two markers Paul Gough and Jim Tomlinson for helping out over the two weeks. Tickets are now available for the Presentation Evening on the 24th November from Pat Crowe 01928 574689. I would like to take this opportunity to thank secretaries and players for their help throughout the season.
