Nigel Matthews won the North West Federation Millennium Trophy at Pendle last weekend, 19th and 20th August. Angharrad Walters and Robert Essler were also playing in the event.
There wasn’t a knockout stage. Paul Rigge, the manager, organised it as an Egyptian with 5 games to qualify for prizes, but set the target of trying for all play all. Nigel and Angharrad both won 6 out of their 7 games to be joint leaders. However, the deciding factor then was the game between Nigel and Angharrad, which Nigel won 26 – 19. Thus Nigel won the trophy.
Robert won 2 out of his 7 games.
Many congratulations Nigel.
