Congratulation to Ian Symmonds and Paul Chapman who qualified for their BCBA badge by reaching the final of the Borough Triples playing with Eddie Stanley.
Sadly, Paul was unable to compete in the final but "Super Sub" Steve Curtis made up the squad to play a Purley Bury side on 2nd Sept. Our team was successful and won in the final.
Also in the Finals we had Brian Gonsalves playing in the Pickard singles. Brian too was successful against a player from Shirley Park and is now the Pickard champion. We congratulate them all on their success.
