The Men’s Championship Pairs finals were played last Saturday afternoon and what an event it was!
The major saw Michael Sharpe & Ian Farley pitted against Frank Carbone & Grant Nicol.
For the Plate Doddy Innes &Dave Bradbury took on Keith Davis & Jeff Watson.

In the Major Carbone & Nicol got off to a good start with Sharpe & Farley picking up the pace with a 4 on the 5th end.
Play was very even up to the 14th end that saw both teams equal on 13pts.
Carbone & Nicol then took out the next 4 ends, with a strong 4 on the 15th end, to take the Championship 21 : 13.
In the Plate Innes & Bradbury began with a strong performance to lead 12:4 after 9 ends.
Davis & Watson rallied picking up a 4 on the 10th end.
After 13 ends Innes & Bradbury led 16 : 9.
In a replica of the Major, the next 6 ends went to Davis & Watson who took out the Plate 20 : 16.
