Our commiserations to his family and friends

Jackson Cup

Congratulations to Don Mitchell for winning the Jackson Cup for 2021/22.  Although there is one round still to play he has an unassailable lead.

The competition for the Rayner Cup is still to be decided however and all rests on the final round on 6th July.
