? THE inaugural running of the Don Lawrence Memorial Shield produced a keenly contested competition at St Andrews.

Members of Don’s family were on hand to witness the play and present the winners shield that they had donated. Doreen Henderson, Jan Pope, Phil Villis and Mike Cordwell who remained unbeaten, were deserved winners.

Andrew Owens, who has already qualified for the semi-finals in the county pairs, triples and fours, had a fine quarter-final win over Matt Hamilton of Ilminster in the singles. Paul Denslow of Donyatt will have home advantage in the semi-final.

Alec Horsburgh was in excellent form for the Goodwoods in their win over the Fillies in the Pro Wash Open Triples. Ably assisted by Ted Day and Bob Roberts, they eased home by 16 shots to 12.

The Classics seemed to have won their latest match as they held a four shot advantage with an end to play. Hunters’ skip Malcolm Goddard had other ideas as he trailed the jack with his penultimate wood and, with his last effort, took out the shot wood to grab the five shots for a win.

The Jackpots were the latest team to attempt to stop the Chasers in their relentless march to the title. Tony Hyde, John Steer and brother Tony brushed aside their challenge with a commanding 17-7 victory.
