Blewbury finished this year’s competition with one win, one draw and one loss.
1-1 draw away to High Wycombe – Robin Brown (-1.5) beat Duncan Reeve (-2) +17TP. Nick Butler (-1) lost to Raouf Allim (-0.5) -2. Robin had a comfortable win but a missed peg out by Nick while well ahead proved very costly as Raouf came back to snatch victory.
0-2 loss away to Aldermaston – Robin Brown (-2) lost to Andy Myers (-1.5) -9TP. Nick Butler (-1) lost to Steve Woolnough (1.5) -20. In very challenging conditions, a bumpy lawn and firm hoops, Robin had a chance to win but failed a triple peel attempt; Nick however really struggled blobbing a number of hoops and was soundly beaten.
2-0 win home to Basingstoke – Nick Butler (-1) beat Roger Barnacle (2.5) +11. Joe King (-0.5) beat Ian Harrison (4) +18. Joe got into trouble after 1 peel of a triple attempt but it wasn’t punished so he won comfortably, Nick started strongly whizzing round to 4-back on turn 5 and then kept Roger at arm’s length with both games pegging out just 2 seconds apart.
This left us 3rd in the table with 3 points, close behind winners High Wycombe who finished on 5 points and runners up Aldermaston on 4.
