FLETCHER TROPHY 2019

FLETCHER TROPHY 

The Fletcher Trophy, the premier Club competition in Essex, was held on 27th October in Ingatestone, 48 boards over two sessions. For WFBC it was in time honoured fashion a game of two halves. In the second half our team came a clear first, with Tony and Martin a long way ahead in first place in the X-imps and Anne and Winnie fifth. Unfortunately our performance in the first half was not so good and overall we finished 5th out of the 9 teams. Curiously last year we had an almost identical bad start but came second in the second session to finish 5th out of 11 teams. Looking forward to a good start next year! 

Full results are on the Essex County website.
