BDPL Melee 4th June 2017

The BDPL held its first melee of the season at Earls Colne Con Club.

With 28 players entered, with a whole range of abilities from the very experienced to some playing for the first time, a random draw put them into 14 doubles teams.

The morning was played in leagues with the top 8 teams going into the main and the others going into the plate.

The plate final saw Dave Pearse and Steven George defeat Richard Evans and Dean 13-11

In the Main final Mike Brown and Graham Farmer defeated Graham Farquarson and Matt Cooney 13-7, but although losing in the final the con club pairing must take a great deal of credit in reaching the final.

Personally I would like to thank the Con club for their hard work preparing and laying on a venue for this enjoyable event for everybody.
