Plenty of drama in league's championship finals
THE Tendring Hundred League championship finals were played on the fast-running greens at Thorpe.
The men’s singles contest produced high drama and was won by Dick Bloom, of Dovercourt, who beat Frinton’s Tony Cook 21-19.
He had been three shots down on the last end before fighting back to win by two shots.
The two-woods final was contested by the same two players.
Again, Bloom proved too strong and picked up his second title courtesy of a 21-12 success.
Hosts Thorpe were represented in the men’s pairs by Dick Ramsbottom and John Ward.
They were up against Albert Twells and Andy McKillop, of Wivenhoe.
After an abysmal start, they staged a recovery but still lost 27-19.
In the triples final, the Clacton team of Richard Plummer, Joe Crane and Trevor Cole were much too strong for Dave Frost, Barry Whitman and Rae Shiplee, of Parkeston, winning 27-7.
The fours final resulted in a great success for Parkeston’s Frost, Nick Neal, Whitman and Shiplee.
They beat the Frinton quartet of Dave West, John Russell, Brian Denny and Doug Wright 21-12.
The presentation of all trophies, including the league and knockout cups, will take place at Clacton Golf Club on October 6.
