Weston Crib league finally finished off their 2019/20 season last Thursday (September 9) with finals night being held at 49 Club due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

With the league, which is celebrating 104 years this year, done and dusted the week before, Regency A were crowned the winners with Charles Dickens coming a close second.

This only left the cup competitions to complete and Regency A completed the double with victory in The Shield Trophy over Weston Golf Club.

The Services beat Boro Social Club to win Red Barrel Cup, while Rob Hooper of Regency B beat Wayne Walker of Boro Social Club  in the singles knock-out. Tony Jakeman and John Ley-Morgan beat father and son duo of Alan and Stuart Moulton from The Services in the Paris knock-out.

Prizes were presented by league secretary Steve Corrick before a thank you speech from the successful Regency A Captain Mark Short.
