The final tournament of the season reaches it’s climax on Saturday when Palmerston host Waterloo in the Brockbank.
Waterloo defeated Carlton in their semi final while Palmerston overcame Mersey Bowmen.
The final is due to start at 2pm for anyone who would like to go and watch.
Carlton won the Eric Worthington Plate by defeating Mossley Hill by 135 games to 100! Congratulations to all who played.
Congratulations to East Wavertree who defeated Palmerston in the semi final and then Widnes in the final to clinch the Fairlawn Trophy. The final score was 6-2.
We’ll see them collect their trophy on Friday 23rd September at the League Presentation.
The Brockbank is also reaching the latter stages of the competition and the following Clubs will play the 3rd Round on the 23rd of August.
Palmerston v Blundellsands
Bohemians v Mersey Bowmen
Waterloo v Aughton
Carlton v Campion.
Congratulations to Matthew Gibson and Beth Taylor who have won the 2016 Chavasse Cup after securing a two set win over last year’s finalists Ian Malabar and Tia Morris of East Wavertree. The final was scheduled to be played as the concluding event on the final Sunday of The Liverpool Hope International Tennis Tournament at Liverpool Cricket Club. Unfortunately the bad weather closed in just before the pairs were due to take their place on the main show court and the fixture had to be rearranged for the following weekend.
Fortunately Chris Evans was able to make the following weekend and personally present the Chavasse Cup and runners up trophies. As many will know, Chris was the instigator of the Tournament in memory of Noel Chavasse, a prominent member of Liverpool Cricket Club who was awarded the Victoria Cross twice for his service in the First World War. Once again we have to thank Chris and all at Liverpool Cricket Club and Northern Vision for generously involving the Liverpool Group in the tournament.
Well done to all Clubs that supported this event and worked with Peter Mattocks to get the fixtures played in the run up to the final. Peter puts a lot of effort into the organisation of the Cup and we are hoping that the competition will go from strength to strength.
