Alleycats defeat Choppers in the final

The Alleycats defeated the Choppers in the final of the Central League’s George Davis Cup.

THE Central Skittles League George Davis Cup final took place at the Regency Pub between the Alleycats and Choppers.

Choppers got off to a flyer in the first set, thanks to John Webber (50), taking the set by 14 pins. Alleycats soon took control of the second set with help from Julian Tanner (54) and won the set by 25 pins.

Both teams showed their nerves in the third set, spares from John Bastin (54) and Jon Blackhurst (49) helped to a very close set with the Choppers taking it by one pin.

Going into the last set with a 10-pin advantage, the Alleycats didn’t get off to a great start which helped the Choppers pull five pins back.
