Nigel Matthews wins NWF Millennium GC Tournament, 24th August

Nigel Matthews has monopolised the North West Federation tournaments in 2023, by winning the Millennium Level Play GC Trophy at Crake, to add to the Millennium Open AC Trophy that he won at Pendle. A brilliant achievement. Nigel was not the only Bowdon member competing. Angharrad Walters was also participating, along with ‘far country’ member David Cornes (main club Crake).

Nigel and Angharrad each won their Blocks in dominating fashion, with 5 wins out of 5 games. David Cornes won 2 out of 5, in the same block as Angharrad. The top 2 from each Block went through to the knockout stage. In the knockouts, Angharrad lost to Roger Brooks 3 -7, but Nigel beat Dave Venables 7 – 4. In the final Nigel beat Roger Brooks 10 – 9.
