The 14 -3 scoreline did not reflect the high standard of play by Ron who conceded before the last end of the 11-end final.

As they left the green, both players were given a round of applause by spectators including many of the unsuccessful participants in the knockout competition which attracted 14 entries.

Geoff will receive his trophy at the club presentation night on 8th November.

History note: The Jubilee Shield was presented to the club to mark its golden jubilee in 1958. The club green was then behind the Yorkshire Grey pub in the high street and it was the pub’s brewers who donated the trophy for a one-day singles competition.
