Jagger team wins Crockfords Cup

The Crockfords Cup - England's premier knockout teams competition - has been won by the team of Julian Wightwick, Jon Cooke, Ian Pagan, Paul Barden, Chris Jagger & Jonathan Mestel (the latter two playing in the early rounds). The eight-team all-play-all final was closely contested, with five teams losing no more than two matches each, but the Jagger team emerged victorious. They scored 89 VPs, with the De Botton team (Janet de Botton, David Bakhshi, Tom Townsend, Artur Malinowski, Thor Erik Hoftaniska & Dror Padon) in second on 83, and the Byrne team on 79 VPs.

The Plate competition, for those losing in the early stages of the Cup competition, was won by Stephen Green, Nick Smith, Alan Wilson & Roger Bryant (picture) - Graham Link also played for the team in earlier rounds of the competition. They finished the all-play-all final with 90 VPs, with the Milman team in second with 83 VPs.

The entries for the 2018-19 competition are now open, and close on Monday 17th September.
