Allfrey team wins Schapiro Spring Foursomes

The Schapiro Spring Foursomes has been won by the second-seeded Allfrey team.

Alexander Allfrey, Andrew Robson, Mike Bell, David Gold, David Bakhshi & Tony Forrester reversed a result from earlier in the event by defeating in the final the Barton team which beat them in the fourth round. Due to the 'double-elimination' format the defending champions got their chance at revenge and defeated the seventh seeds - Rory Boland, John Carroll, Tom Hanlon, Krzysztof Martens, Hugh McGann and Mark Moran - in the final. Brian Senior's report from final is available here.

The Swiss Teams competition, with acted as a secondary consolation competition, and as a 'stand alone' competition for those joining the event at that stage, was won by Robert Boeddekev, Paul Gruenke, Roland Rohowsky & Flora Zarkesch (pictured here).
