Pendle’s Advanced Weekend, June 15/16th
Matt Holmes & Paul Rigge entered this weekend tournament along with players from all over the NW & NE. The rain stayed away apart from a quick shower early Saturday morning. The lawns are still recovering from last year’s *wet season* and the hoops were set firm and tight, so it was *challenging* to say the least.
Paul didn’t drop a game in either the KO or the Egyptian so lifted both the David Openshaw Claret Jug for the second time and the Chris Clark Bowl for the first, but it’s worth noting that some of his games *did* drag on – the last ball being hit on Saturday night at 22:10 before pegging down the game to recommence Sunday for 22mins. (so didn’t win the ‘fastest game’ award).
Paul 8/9, Matt managed 4/8
