The summer 2017 season ended with a boom as Jack’s team Hedge End Club ended up winners of the division 1.
It was a tough season with a few ups and downs but they got over the line. Jack’s Dad Laurence hit the winning double in the last league match of the season to secure the points meaning Hedge End Club were out of reach and had won the league.
A fitting end you could say.
The silverware didn’t stop there and the team were not finished yet.
On finals night representatives from the team were also in the Singles and Doubles competitions.
Steve Perren took on Dean Cole (Bishops Waltham) in the semi final of his singles. After winning that he then went on to beat Roger Jeans (Park Gate) in the final after a nail-biting finish.
Massive well done to Steve.
Next up was the doubles competition. Steve Perren again was involved with his partner and Jack’s dad Laurence Dowding.
These two won this competition in the Winter and looked to make it back to back doubles winners.
They delivered and won the event again!
They beat Andy Spreadbury and Colin Rich (Bold Forester) and then went on to win in other close contest against Andy Reynolds and Alan Sawyer (Black Dog)
They also picked up the prize for the quickest pairs leg throughout the season – a quality 12 darter.
They have carved out a bit of a reputation in this competition now and will no doubt look to extend this run in the future competitions.
It means a lot to them both winning this as Steve and Loz go back many years and have been close friends for a long time.
Great stuff champs!
Other awards included the quickest singles leg won by John Banks, and Steve Perren again picked up two more honours – the most 180s and highest outshot 170.
They don’t come much higher than that.
So a full clean sweep.
Every event Hedge End Club entered this season they won!
Jack would have been very proud of his team this season.
A cracking season, full of great laughs, a few heated debates (which is good) and some blinding arrows.
Here’s to a few more….
