Longhurst Cup success for Halliwell, Shepherd and Thomas.

08:01 27 August 2014

Sixty-three seniors competed for the Longhurst Cup, a better ball competition with one score to count, writes Andy Wagner.

Originally presented in 1995 by tradition a portion of the entry fee is donated to the ‘Children in Need’ charity.

A score of 41 points was popular with many teams testing the mental arithmetic ability of the Committee to establish places on count back and met with groans as one by one teams were wiped from the leader board.

They need not have bothered as the team of Lawrie Halliwell, Peter Shepherd and Fred Thomas came in with 42 points to take fourth place, the final prize.

Fred Utting, Mike Ward and the irrepressible George Smith were third with 43 points just pipped by Peter Dart, Brian Sidney and Alan Devenny with 44 points.

The top spot and the Cup was awarded to the trio of Clive Whithear, John Vessey and David Maggs with an impressive total of 46 points.

The biggest winner of the day however was perhaps a surprised John Chew achieving the only two of the day and pocketing 41 balls.
