Congratulations to Wigan members Mike Nicholson & Des King who partnered up with teammates Stu Norris and Rod Greenhalgh to win this years Lancashire Congress Green Pointed Teams Event. The field of 14 teams saw players travelling from other counties throughout the North West including several international and professional bridge players. After winning their first match by 18-2 VP's, the team led from start to finish in their 7 matches to amass a massive 100 VP's (over 70% of the total) to end up 15 VP's ahead of the field. So as comfortable winners in the end, the cross imps table also revealed that Mike and Des ended on top quite a way in front of the rest of the other competing pairs. Mike has won this event previously back in 2002 and for Des it is his 3rd win in the last 10 years.
