This year’s Metropolitan Cup took place over the weekend, with Middlesex CBA hosting. The Met Cup is the south-east region’s Teams of Eight championships, with seven counties – Berks&Bucks, Essex, Kent, London, Middlesex, Surrey and Sussex – competing across three divisions.
The Surrey teams were:
A - Arun Suri & David Norman, Charles Chisnall & Bob James, Graham Sadie & Richard Granville, Richard Fedrick & Mike Scoltock
B – Steve Irwin & Tony Cherrett, David Dawson & Christine Dyer, Gerard Thompson & Andrew Mann, Peter Hardyment & Malcolm Bricknell
C – Simon Prager & Henryk Klocek, Brian Adlam & Dave Sellman, Tim Warren & John Manches, Graham E Osborne & Mike Tinsley
In the A Division, we won by a distance, with a remarkable 90VPs/120. Charles & Bob came top of 28 in the individual pairs’ (cross-IMPs) table, and all four of our pairs were in the top half. By winning, our A team qualify for the national finals in June 2020.
Surrey B finished 5th, with David and Christine our best-placed pair at 7th/28.
Surrey C finished 3rd – we were leading at half-time, but losing 4-16 to the eventual winners gave us too much ground to recoup. Brian & Dave came an excellent 2nd/28 in the individual pairs’ table, and again all four pairs were in the top half.
