Kennish Cup

A couple of showers didn’t spoil a great afternoon at South Ramsey on Sunday as 32 pairs competed for the Kennish Cup, on a green in superb condition.

At the end of the day the same surnames as the previous year will go on the trophy with Jenny Moore and Bob Clark following on from Elaine Moore and Andy Clark in 2012. This was in fact Jenny’s fourth time winning this event, all with different partners; Bob also having been successful in 2008.

In a final that went all the way the victors beat the pairing of Viv and Chas Grills who opened with a three on the first end; but then Moore and Clark moved into a 17-12 lead, before their opponents fought back to a deficit of just one.

A pair at the next end saw a score of 19-16; but not to be outdone the Grills moved back into the lead at 20-19; two singles decided the outcome and brought to an end a very successful afternoon.

Losing semi-finalists were Alison Keggen and Michael Collister, along with Jordan Cain and Paula Firth. Falling at the quarter-finals stage were Irene Brew and Alan Moore; Mary and John Alderson; Casey Bolton and Trevor Quayle; and Elaine Moore and James Teare.

The prizes were presented by Fiona and Shelley Kennish on behalf of the family who thanked everyone for any help and those who took part.
