Crake Valley Players in National Finals
Crake Valley recently had 2 representatives playing in National Finals – After finishing 4th in the Northern Regional GC Final in August David Cornes had a late call up to play in the National GC Handicap Finals at Hunstanton on 22/23rd September. There where 14 finalists in a 2 day “all play all” format. David managed to win 7 out of his 13 matches and finished a very credible 8th position. A tremendous achievement with the highlight being a 7-4 victory against the runaway Champion Simon Carter (-3).
On the same weekend Sandra Cornes played in the C level finals in Nottingham – there were 16 finalists with Sandra being the highest handicapper in the field. Despite this disadvantage Sandra still managed 3 wins so avoided finishing bottom. Given the short time Sandra has been playing to get to the finals and to win some games is a massive achievement.
Crake also has David Lloyd playing in the B levels finals this coming weekend at Camerton & Peasedown.
