Jack Pye & AJ Brown win SMPT European Open Pairs title

Jack Pye & AJ Brown of Wymondham SMBC are SMPT European Open Pairs Champions after beating Sweden’s Bente & Tommy Dahlgren by 12-7 with an end to spare in the final in Herentals, Belgium. Jack & AJ went through the entire weekend unbeaten. After reeling off four wins and a draw on the first day of the event to dominate Group G they continued to display great form winning all their games on Sunday. Their last group game saw them beat Belgium’s Herman De Rijcke & Herman Verheist 12-4 and followed that with a 10-5 win against Sweden’s Olle Backgren & Michael Derwael in the first knock-out round. They then eliminated Irish pair Robert Kidd & Lawrence McCarten before facing a huge task against fellow Englishmen Craig Burgess & Mitchell Young in the quarter-finals. It proved to be a tough match but Jack & AJ again came out on top winning by two shots. A win against Belgium’s Sibe Laureys & Frans Horemans in the semi-finals saw them through to play the Dahlgrens in the final. The Dahlgrens had reached the final with a semi-final victory against Belgium’s Jonathan & Dimitri Payne.
