West Briton Cup Final 2012/13 Report

Camelford Badminton Club retained the West Briton Cup last Friday 22nd March 2013, at Polkyth Leisure Centre after a closely encountered match, against Mounts Bay Badminton Club, who had beaten St. Austell Bay in the semi-final with Camelford having beaten CYB to reach this closely contested final.

The Teams of:-

Camelford – Jo Philp; Rachel Stacey; Claire Walkey; Rob Cook; Rob Heckbert; Tony Marshall.

Mounts Bay – Vicky Thomas; Vicky O’Connell; Marianne Fowler; Lee Chapple; Trev Searle; Andy White,

were all set, and for the few spectators that attended, put on a display of excellent badminton.

The Mounts Bay ladies won their 3 disciplines with excellent play, but the Camelford Men set their stall out early and a victory for the two Rob’s was the start of a winning pattern and whilst the Mounts Bay men put up a resilient fight taking the 3rd match to three ends, Camelford edged to a Men’s victory.

So with the score at 3 – 3 it was all down to the Mixed.

Claire Walkey & Tony Marshall at 3rd Mixed were the first victory, winning in 2 ends (21/16; 21/18). This was closely followed by Jo Philp & Rob Cook beating Vicky Thomas & Lee Chapple (21/12; 21/13). With the match sealed, Mounts Bay took the last rubber with Vicky O’Connell & Trev Searle beating Rachel Stacey & Rob Heckbert (22/20; 21/13), which resulted in a 5 – 4 victory to Camelford.

Congratulations to both Teams, on a well played match, played in the great spirit of the game we all love.
