Duncan Crabtree (Longton VM) 21 V 13 Kevin Leddy (Hesketh Arms)


On a beautiful sunny summer evening on the superb running Longton VM Sports & Social Club green, after finishing runner-up in the President's Day the previous Saturday, Duncan Crabtree from the host club went one better to take the Steve Rimmer Memorial Singles Shield title by defeating Kevin Leddy (Hesketh Arms) 21-13 in the final. Despite giving 3 start to all his opponents & using his home green knowledge, he played brilliantly throughout the evening on his favourite three quarter length mark into the corner by the entrance & then uphill towards the middle edge of the green which none of his opponents could match. In the semi-finals, Duncan easily beat Colin Moore (London Hotel), who reached the semi-finals for the second league competition running, 21-10 whilst Kevin beat Andy Draper (Banks St Stephens) in a closely fought match which could have easily gone either way, 21-19. The League & competitors would like to give many thanks to Ady Hoyle (President) for presenting the trophy & prizemoney, Longton VM Sports & Social Club for the use of their superb facilities & their members who helped in the running of the final stages of this competition as well as to the organizers at the qualifying venues & to all league members who supported this competition, making it a very memorable & fitting tribute to Steve Rimmer.
