In the match of the week the Men’s Championship Triples was played out Sunday morning; and what a brilliant match it was, the score really no indication of just how tight the game was throughout. Laurie’s team however rose to the challenge to eventually take the title for 2015. Congratulations to all six players on a great game.
Men’s 2015 SGBC Triples championship final: G Kilduff, P Robinson, L Preston d S Weber, S Bridle, G Mallison 22-15.
