There were 16 teams at Burridge on Remembrance Sunday for the first Cobbetts Poppy Petanque Open Doubles.
Half of the proceeds from the day (Entry, food, raffle and ‘Shoot the Egg’) were donated to the Poppy Appeal and £100 was raised.
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.
4 players made it to the final of the ‘Shoot the Egg’ competition, Stan, Dean, Etsil and Dave with Dean eventually beating Dave in the shoot out.
