Faulkners 1st and 3rd in High Bisque Finals

We held our annual high bisque competition on Thursday and from the very first game it was clear that Jean Faulkner was going to be very hard to beat, overcoming veteran player Jay Popplewell 7 – 2.

The eleven players were split into two groups, one of five and one of six, for the preliminary rounds and Jean headed her group with 48 points, 8 ahead of her nearest rival, her husband Jeff, winning five out of her six games.

In the other group Roy Schofield came out on top with 37 points winning four of his five games.

So the final was between Jean and Roy which Jean lead all the way and won 7 – 5.

In the other play off Jeff Faulkner beat Dave Holt 7 – 6 so Jeff was third and Dave 4th.

A great day and congratulations to Jean.

Hats off for Jean, winner of the annual High Bisque Competitionon Thursday (18th).  Last year’s winner Peter Hill congratulates Jean after presenting her with the trophy.
