Enfield’s GC Level Play Knockout Competition.

Won by Henry Hobbs


28 September


Many congratulations to Henry Hobbs.


Henry’s route to the final included wins over John Street 7 - 6 and David Barnicoat 7 - 2.
Whilst his opponent on Thursday 27th was Brian Dawes who made it to the final by beating Peter Brock 7 - 5 and David Frost 7 - 5 two days earlier.


The match was played on a lovely peaceful morning with no other soul in sight other than the odd disinterested squirrel or two. The game was evenly contested and swung one way then the other throughout.


Both contestants declared it a highly enjoyable match and felt it fitting that it had gone to Golden Hoop before a win could be achieved.
