Success for Somerset players
Last weekend (24th/25th Jan) saw two great wins for Somerset players at various tournaments.
Firstly, John Foley of South Petherton travelled to Dublin to play in the Irish National Masters Championship. To get to the final he had to overcome, amongst others, the top seed, who he beat 21/11, 21/11, and then in the final he destroyed his opponent 21/11, 21/6 to become Irish Over 45 National Champion.
And then on sunday Amy Reddaway and Laura Newman played in the Devon Silver Open and dominated the ladies doubles event, getting through to the final and then beating a Devon first team pair 21/11, 21/7 in the final. The previous day Amy had narrowly lost in the Singles final. Well done to everyone.
