Report 2013


It must have been the coldest day of the year, in fact it was the coldest day on record for over sixty years. It did have its good points, standing in the sun, out of the wind it was really warm, but then it didn’t last for long. Apart from the cold the thing that will be most remember were the antics of ‘Twosie minus one’.

Before the championship began the Mayor Councillor Keith Blake presented Mike and Dave of the Handcross 49ers with this years John Burnett award, in recognition for running and refereeing the golden oldies tournament for the past eleven years.
