Heywood Gelling Trophy

Neil Withers got one over on his fellow victor from the day before as he and partner Lyn Bolton won the Marown mixed doubles with a 21-7 final victory over Jordan Cain and Paula Firth.
Withers & Bolton were on fire from the off and were going to be difficult for anyone to beat, although they were pushed close by John & Fiona Kennish in the semi-finals with the former winning 21-17. Cain and Firth were also embroiled in a battle for their final birth however after progressed with relative comfort in the end with a 21-13 win over James Teare & Jenny Moore.
Fallers at the Quarter final stage were Rona Argallon & Grahem Moore, Margaret Tasker & Ken Karran, Joyce Ogden & Mike Hargraves and Mavis Franks & Derek Allan.
A brave 31 pairs endured the weather which for most of the competition was wet and windy although everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and a tremendously well run competition.
