Great Scot! Brian takes the bragging rights in a family affair

Ready for battle: Stella Kendall, John Wakeford, Pam Briggs and Mark Keogh

First blood in the 2022 Winslow Cup went to Brian Jamieson, who beat his wife Carol by 14 hoops to 10 to ensure a place in the semi-finals of the club’s AC handicap knock-out competition. Brian was on winning form again when Caversham visited Phyllis Court in the AC Handicap North League. Mike Kay also won his match but defeats for Charles Briggs and Carol meant that we had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

The GC doubles cup also got under way with the pairing of Pam Briggs and Stella Kendall taking on Mark Keogh and John Wakeford, the ladies finally eclipsing the gentlemen at the 13th ‘golden hoop’ after a closely-fought battle.
