Higson Finals

The finals of the Higson Cup & Plate were held at St Peter's Assembly Rooms on Sunday 21st June

7 teams played in each of the finals and it was great to see so many bridge players in the same room for a County event for the first time since March 2020

Huge congratulations to the winners were The Sandbaggers - Julia Bannister, Ross Worthington, Steve Mattinson and Rob Harris (Joyce White, Mike Parr and Steve Tearle in earlier rounds) who put in a great performance to overcome the massive IMPs lead of Tracy Sherman's Deal or No Deal once the handicaps were applied. St Titus were third.

The results of the handicapped event are here

Congratulations the plate final was won by Revolver - Howard Rosemarine, Jonathan Berg, Jeffrey Bor and Adrian Shiers - who beat Allsorts who put up a strong performance to finish second and Hindsight Convention, the strongest team in the plate final who finished 3rd.

Results are here

Thanks to Jeff Smith for directing both finals and apologies from the Cup Secretary (Adam Wiseberg) for an error in calculating the VP scores resulting in the wrong winners being announced on the day
