David Long wins the GC Icknield Cup

The GC Icknield Cup semi-finals and finals took place on Wednesday 27th October. In the semi-finals David Long beat Carol Wadsworth 7-5, 4-7, 7-6 and John Garnett beat Carol Jamieson 7-6, 7-4

In a battle of the Carols for third place, Carol Jamieson beat Carol Wadsworth 7-5, 7-5 reportedly with a miraculous comeback in the second game from 0-4 down.

The final was a re-run of last year’s final but with a different result. David beat John 4-7,7-4, 7-2 in a very competitive match, making some excellent use of the extra turns in the third game. The photo shows last year’s winner passing the cup to this year’s winner.

Congratulations to David as this year’s Icknield Cup winner.
