The Alans Mayne and Pidcock take NWFCC Millenium Advanced Honours (11/04/11)
Managed by Bury member, Geoff Young, sixteen players were sent by their clubs to compete once again, in warm sunshine, for the Federation’s only advanced tournament of the year. For the first time since it’s inception, for the millenium, the ‘A’ class event was contested by only minus players, showing that the general standard of play continues to improve in this region at all clubs. The Cup was played as a flexible swiss with one of last year’s rapid improvers – Alan Mayne, taking it with only a single loss, back to Bowdon. The Trophy was won by the other Alan in attendance this weekend, with Southport’s Alan Pidcock winning the round robin. It is worth noting that Linesy turned in the only TP’s, despite still nursing his injured hand and not having his full shot armory available.
