National Fours title stays in West Mids

The National Fours title stayed in the West Mids as Jon Pitcher, Craig Strong, Ross Dunkley & Adam Easthorpe beat Shropshire’s Chris Williams, Chris Shakeshaft, Allan Williams & Chris Grocott by 9-3 in the final. The West Mids four had beaten Devon’s Maddie Edmondson, Adam Perris, Gill Smith & Nick Wyatt 9-8 in the semi-finals while the Shropshire four had romped home by 12-1 against Dorset’s Paul Pomeroy, Thomas Perris, Alex Kley & Sam Harvey. Norfolk’s Karl Newby, Robbie Lamb, Ryan Fox & David Lamb qualified as Group 3 winners unbeaten with two wins and a draw. In the Last 32 round they beat the West Mids four of Dave Harris, Peter Dunkley, Steve Darling, & Gary Brown by 9-6 and went on to beat a Devon four by 10-5 in the Last 16 round. But a slow start contributed to a narrow 8-6 defeat in the quarter-finals against the eventual runners-up from Shropshire despite a spirited comeback. Simon Willies, Keith Cooke, Jason Woods & Chris Willies were Group 4 winners with two wins and a draw. In the Last 32 round they won by 11-9 against Surrey’s Sue Tuttle, Steph Taylor, Steve Tuttle & Dave Gillings but were eliminated in the Last 16 round where they lost by 7-8 against a Devon four.
