Challenge Cup Title for Haltwhistle

The 6 teams competing in this years final were Gosforth Empire, Fossway, Benfield, Seaton Sluice, Willington Quay and Haltwhistle.  After the first 2 and 3 sessions it was clear that no club would win all of the games, meaning that all clubs were in contention. After the fourth game, Willington Quay were leading with 4 points and were ahead on shots difference, but going into the final games both of their rinks had to overcome deficits to remain in pole position. Therefore the first prize was arguably between Benfield and Haltwhistle, as both of these teams were also on 4 points, and these clubs faced each other in the final game, with Benfield holding a 3 shot advantage from the initial game earlier in the day.  Haltwhistle got of to a good start, and took a 7 nil lead at 4 ends. This was maintained and stretched to a final scoreline of 12 - 2; and with the other Haltwhistle rink winning it meant the Challenge Cup was going to Haltwhistle. 

This significant win and success was a first title of the Challenge Cup for Haltwhistle.

The successful Haltwhistle team was as follows: Jason Forster, Maurice Davidson, Malcolm Davidson, Melvyn Taylor, Martin Rogan, David Herdman, Edward Reynolds, Michael Rogan.

Well done to all players and clubs that took part and made the event a successful one, as always - and a big thank you to our sponsor Darrian Properties.
