Poppy Appeal Doubles 2009

Sunday, November 8th 2009

There were 16 teams at Burridge on Remembrance Sunday for the first Cobbetts Poppy Petanque Open Doubles.

After the morning leagues 4 teams had won all 3 games (Richard & Dave, Dean & Gemma, Chris & Stephen and Mike & Mary Sheppard). Mike and Mary couldn’t maintain there fine form from the morning but the other 3 teams all reached the semi-finals, including Stephen playing in his first competition for 9 years! Richard and Dave proved to be too strong on their home terrain and having beaten Dean & Gemma 13-6 went on to beat Roz and Matt 13-4 in the final.
