2022 TRF Wills Tournament

Following the successful Centenary tournament held in 2021. Our club sponsor, Michael Cotterill of TRF Wills, kindly agreed to a sponsor the event again this year. There were some last minute potential hiccups with several home players unable at the last minute due to Covid-19, however replacements were drafted in and the event went ahead with six visiting teams (Belmont, Broadclyst, Crediton, Exonia, Heavitree & Pinces Gardens) played matches against six teams from St Thomas. Each match was reduced to three ends due to the extremely hot weather.

The afternoon’s play was punctuated by a splendid team supplied by the club sponsor  and kindly organised by the Goldsworthy family. 

The competition for visitor’s winning trophies was closely contested with Crediton and Belmont both registering five wins and the winner decided on shot difference.  For the home club  the appropriately named team one (Lea Fitzmaurice, Alan Nethercott & Steve Hodge) were the successful side.
