Edgbaston B Class Event, 24th/25th August
Andy Brandwood Wins the Sally Nichols Trophy.
Ian Slater reports;
Andy’s final game narrowly missed earning his Gold Award. His attempted TP gradually reduced to a straight double. A fine penult peel arrived four feet short of rover but the subsequent rush was sadly not so good and the tricky rover peel failed.
The three-way tie by Clive, Adrian and Andy each on 4/5 games had to be determined by net hoops, leaving Andy a clear winner. Tony Whateley nearly beat Clive in his last-to-finish final game which would have left Adrian holding the trophy on who-beats-whom. Such are the vagaries of tie-breaking.
Andy’s handicap has reduced to 3.
