Bry Rad’s Mens Doubles

Bowing out in the quarter finals were Alan Moore & James Teare (South Ramsey), Patrick and Stephen Grant (Ballaugh), Lee Dawson and Tony Hart (South Ramsey), and Bernard Thackrah and Mike Skelly (Port St Mary/North Ramsey).
Losing out in the semi-finals were home greeners Dickie Watson and John Kneen along with Derek Cadamy & Dave McCabe (Port Erin/Port St Mary).
The final was home greeners John Keenan & John Maddrell versus the Peel combination of Harry Kelly and Andy Kennish. The two John’s picked up two three’s and a two at the beginning of the game, only for Harry and Andy to almost peg them back before the home greeners got the jack back to win 21-16 to ensure it was a win for John Keenan and John Maddrell.
The presentations were made by Competition Secretary Richard Faragher, on behalf of the sponsor Bry Radcliffe, who thanked the club members for organising such a good event thanks especially to the ladies in the kitchen. In his speech John Maddrell thanked Richard Faragher for running the competition together with the players for supporting the event and the members of Ballaugh for helping run the event.
