Cooke collects mixed fours title

Jenny Walker, Donna Lamb, David Lamb and Keith Cooke won three of their four matches to top the group of just five fours who entered this season's county mixed fours competiton. A round robin decided places one to five with six points proving enough for Cooke's four. A 9-5 win in their first match against Elaine Willies, Jean Woods, Jason Woods and Simon Willies set them on their way as they then romped to an 18-4 win against Diane Quadling, Dave Quadling, Elaine Oatway and Bob Oatway. Having sat out in the third session Cooke's four still headed the table and after the fourth session was completed where they beat Hayley Stratton, Roger Steele, Billie Barker and Melvyn Barker 6-3 they had done enough to win the title with a session to spare. Going into the final session Barker's four held second place still with four points but relied on results going there way which they did fortunately. Cooke was sacrificed as skip in their last match aganst Debbie Pye, Morgan Warnes, Simon Warnes and Jack Pye as they lost 4-6 but this result was not enough for Pye's four to take second as Barker's four also had the same shot difference and therefore shots for came into play with Barker on 29 and Pye on 27. Ryan Fox also collected his U18 trophy on the same day as the only entrant this season.
