Seven Up find some form

Well we are at week eight of the Outdoor Winter League fixtures which is sponsored by Pronto Plumbing; it all started on Wednesday the 24th of November with the afternoon Round Robin. This week saw 16 participants, who all played in doubles as one group.

The victors were Trish Bull and Sue McCourt who beat four other couples by four points. The four pairs that were held to 30 points were Derek Allen/Sylvia Kennaugh, Steve Parker/Pat Rigby, Sue Kerruish/Margie Tasker and Billy Blair/Alan Phair.

Unfortunately Saturday’s Round Robin did not go ahead due to the weather conditions.

Sunday the 28th of November saw three teams take to the green, Seven Up, Castletown Corkers and Nobles Nutters. Seven Up took five wins in their first match against Castletown Corkers, and the game that the Corkers won was by Grace Gawne who held Dougie Allan to 18.

Nobles Nutters also took five wins from the Corkers, but none of the games were really close scoring although the Corkers did get double points in all but one game. Another Gawne this time Lily took victory for the Corkers who held Mark Bradshaw to twelve.

The Nutters then took on Seven Up and unfortunately did not manage a win, Seven Up scoring the maximum 126 chalks available and securing maximum points. The closest scoring game was that won by Kevin Quirk, who didn’t let Juan Qualtrough score more than 18.

Seven Up 7 (123) Castletown Corkers 1 (73), Castletown Corkers 1 (70) Nobles Nutters 7 (117), Nobles Nutters 0 (73) Seven Up 8 (126).

Also just to let all members know that entries are being taken for the J&M Lee charity drawn doubles that is being held on the weekend on the 18th of December.
