Congratulations to Brian Thomas and George Martin who have won the Berwick club pairs championship. Although they only had a moderate session in the final round last night, we failed to get the 63% score needed to overtake them, falling about a top and a half short. Third in the event were Terry Harris and David Elder.
As often happens in mixed pairs fields, you need to get the right hands against the right pairs and last night our opponents generally played well and there were not many opportunities for us to score. Although Brian and George won the event by a margin of 0.5% with their best six scores, they also had a slightly higher average over all their games and deserve to get the trophy back.
The Berwick club closes over the summer but we'll be back in September. LotG remains the Berwick A captain, subject to any coup at the AGM, and will be facing the challenge of the top division for the first time. I expect it will be an exciting season.
