The last of Sussex’s Championships was held today in Hastings and the weather was kind. 12 players turned out for this competition from Brighton, Crowborough & Hastings. There were 3 leagues of four for the morning with the top two players in each league and the two best 3rd placed players going through to a Main Knockout and the remaining 4 players playing in the Plate.
Herbie Edwards won the Plate wining all of his 3 matches.
In the Main, 3rd place was achieved by Steven Slade who beat Alan Constable 13-9. The Final was between Matt Shrimpton (unbeaten at this stage) and Jeff Mitchell and it was a match worthy of any Final. Matt built a strong lead before Jeff started coming back. In the final end with the score 11-10 to Matt, Jeff successfully shot 3 times to take 3 points and for the 3rd year running become the Sussex Singles Champion.
Congratulations to Jeff but also to Matt for a fantastic final.
Thanks also to Paul Turner, Steve Mortimer, Rob Newell and Steve Slade for the preparation of the terrain and providing the facilities and also to Alan Constable who assisted with all the paperwork and organisation on the day.
