Pegged out! Chris crushed by Hobby craft

Caversham’s AC singles champion Chris Pegrum (left) has lost his title in his first defence.

The 2021 Winslow Cup winner was rather surprisingly whitewashed 14-0 in just 40 minutes by Gareth Hobby.

Gareth (right) gave an object lesson on how to play with bisques by making good use of all five of his extra shots and he said: “I didn’t ready the rules properly or I would have realised that I could have had five and a half!”

But he added: “Chris missed some crucial hit-ins.

“We followed up with a social game where Chris returned to his normal accuracy and was beating me handsomely when we called time.”
