24 October 2023Lennie wins Tom Notman silverware
The final of the Tom Notman Memorial Cup was an all 'B' league affair with Erlend Lennie beating Josh Alexander 2-1.
Open to anyone that had previously been a member of the KDDL, the Tom Notman Cup was played for in the Legion on Friday evening. Played using the old league format of 301 doubles start, best of 3 legs, it has failed to attract many entries for quite a few years now. That trend was bucked this time out however, as 28 players showed up all determined to join the long list of previous champions.
The short format usually gives rise to a few underdog triumphs and this was once again proved to be the case, with many of the younger 'B' league players taking notable scalps along the way. Indeed it was to be two young 'B' players who would contest the final with Erlend Lennie and Josh Alexander winning through against Stevie Garner and Derek Firth respectively.
The final was as close as anyone would have expected as both players continued their habit on the night of doubling in and out with aplomb. Eventually though it was Erlend who narrowly rose victorious, winning by two legs to one.
Next up is the Davy Cooper memorial open singles in the Masonic on Saturday afternoon, which will incorporate numerous fundraising games, the proceeds of which will once more be split between the local RNLI and the Fishermens Mission.
