Aldeburgh Carnival Pairs 2016 - Results

After 20 teams having entered and playing 3 qualifying games each, we whittled it down to the semi-finalists as follows;

Martin Inglis & Pete Sharkey (Eels Foot) v Paddy Rosseau & Mark Adamson (Parrot)
Mike & Martha Rios-Hall (Eels Foot) v John Benford & Sian Hart (Leiston Engineers)

It was not to be an all Eels final as Mark & Paddy edged their game whilst Mike & Martha got through in their game.

So settling down to the Final, Mike & Martha played some nice boules but the pair of Parrots proved too strong on the day and very quickly reached 13 points without reply (just like the 2015 Final when a couple from Bressingham defeated Aldeburgh 13-0)

Congratulations Mark & Paddy, well done to Mike & Martha, a big well done to John & Sian who are proving that Leiston are a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to all who attended and took part, especially players who had come down from Manchester and up from Essex & Buckinghamshire.

Adnams Coastal Petanque League versus Nottingham City PC - Saturday 18th June

Seventeen League players, including 3 juniors, travelled to Sherwood on Saturday to take part in a Challenge Match versus our hosts, the Nottingham City Petanque Club.

Playing as pairs on just 8 of their 30+ pistes, four rounds of matches were played. Everything was so evenly matched between the two teams, that the final match score was a 16-16 draw, with Nottingham just shading it on points 315-295.

We had 4 of our teams achieving 3 wins from 4, including Kira, but overall Lewis Fletcher & Seb Rios-Hall were our best pair on the day.

Some great new friends were made and Simon made the offer, on behalf of Suffolk, for our Mercia friends to come to Suffolk next season.

Please visit our Facebook page to see photos of the day and the presentations at the end of the day.
