Thursday 13th June sees the start of the Men’s Pairs Championship – “The Belmont Trophy” with 22 first round ties scheduled, although one game has already been played plus a further three walk-overs already received.
Holders Ian Brown & Paul Ging from Backworth Welfare cannot defend their title to a degree as Paul is not playing this season. However, Ian does play tomorrow night and has a tricky game at Haltwhistle BC.
Last years’ runners up Portland’s Colin Boyle & Gren Richardson enter the fray at the second round stage and face a winner from round one.
I wish everybody the best of luck tomorrow and hoping the weather brightens up somewhat!
