Day 20 of the National Finals is underway and sees the 1st round of the Men’s Triples – with Gosforth’s Peter Duffy in action against Tilehurst, Berkshire ‘B’ Andrew Knapper.
Yesterday pm saw our county champions – Josh Minto, Simon Richardson, Chris Yeomans lost an early first round tie to Oxfordshire Kevin Alder 21 – 17.
Peter’s triple (Steve Miller, Les Yeomans and Peter) is currently on the green and @ 11:30 am Peter trails by 3 with 7 ends to go. Unfortunately our lads lost by 1 shot.
The game was 16 all @ 16 ends. Our trio then lost a count of 3 to make it 19 – 16 going into the last end. Our lads only scored 2 shots and therefore unfortunately lost the game 19 – 18.
Also in action are our Women’s Senior Fours round 2 – where Benfield’s Christine Gardner is playing our Northern Counties colleagues in Kath Baxter from Wigton, Cumbria – updated lost 29 – 5.
Back to the Men’s Triples – on our fellow Northern Counties competitors both Durham triples are out like ourselves; But both Lancashire, both Cumbria and both Yorkshire representatives are all still in and in second round action this afternoon at 2 pm.
