|Open Knockout Competition 2013|
The Grand Final of the Open Knockout was played on Thursday, 10th October 2013 at the Egerton Arms in Brook Street, and the eight finalists were Alan Biddle, Mark Bilverstone, Sandy Churms, John Lea, Paul McLaughlin, John Pritchard, Nigel Walker and Adam Wallace.
Quite remarkably, after
the first round was completed the four highest scorers were all within one
point of each other! They were Alan Biddle, Sandy Churms and
Nigel Walker (all 66), and Paul McLaughlin (65).
In semi-final 2, Sandy won the toss and also chose to go second. Paul struggled his first stick and scored just 19 but played better his second and came out with 19+40=59. Sandy played steadily both sticks and scored 32+34=66 to secure a place in the final.
In the final, Nigel won the toss and again chose to go second. Sandy played steadily again and scored 28+31=59 leaving Nigel needing 60 to win. Nigel scored a steady 29 his first stick and then played very well his second, getting the required points halfway through and then finishing the job by carrying on to score 48, final score 29+48=77. Congratulations go to both winner Nigel Walker and runner-up Sandy Churms.
John Pritchard made the presentations, and Nigel and Sandy are pictured with their trophies.
Thanks go to Paul, Amanda and the staff at the Egerton for hosting the event, especially Tina for doing the draws, and also for the warm stew with rolls which was much appreciated by everyone on a cold night!
I'd also like to thank Dave Cooper for organising all the trophies etc and for refereeing throughout the competition, and also Ray Lamb and John Lea who have also helped out with refereeing.
