Exmouth President Becomes Champion of Champions

The Final gets under way.

The champions of all clubs affiliated to the Devon CCA¬†are eligible to compete in the Winter-Wood Shield, a knockout tournament to identify a “Champion of Champions”, usually played in the summer, between seasons. This year it has dragged on a bit, but eventually the Exmouth and Torquay Champions met in the Final at the Newton Abbot club. The 1st game (Dunn vs Abbot) was drawn, but in the replay on Thursday, with colours reversed, Abbott came out the winner. So 2010 finishes on a bright note for the club which has had an indifferent season, compared to recent years.
