The finals of the team handicap knock-out competitions were held at York RI on Thursday 2nd May.

The Shepherds Trophy was won by York RI ‘B’, beating York RI ‘D’ 5.5-3.5 in a close final. Jeff Cohen gave the D team an early lead by beating Rich Crowther but two wins by Jack Bramley and one from Michael Kwan took the B team into a 3-1 lead.

Adam Stone and Aidy McClaren pulled the D team level before Jack comfortable beat Adam to give the B team a 4-3 lead.

Jeff and Michael drew their match to leave the score 4.5-3.5 although count-back was 29 points in the B team’s favour so Aidy would have needed to beat Rich 42-17 in the last match. As it was Rich beat Aidy to give a final score of 5.5-3.5. Jack Bramley was player of the match, winning his three games.

In the Machell Trophy, for teams who were knocked out in the first round, Clarence ‘C’ beat Shiyi Ling ‘A’ 5-1 in the final. Frank Feng beat Mikey Arnold to give Clarence the lead that they never lost.

Paul Eastwood drew his two games for Shiyi Ling, against Rich Collyer and Frank, to keep his team in the contest but Gary Bunce beat Debbie Scott and Mikey to give Clarence a 4-1 lead. Rich then narrowly beat Debbie 44-42 to seal the victory 5-1.
