2021-22 Competition

8 teams contested this season’s County Fours on 27th March 2022 at the Larruperz Centre. The reduced number of entries enabled the competition to be played as a single league format across the day. 6 clubs were represented across the 8 teams, with Woolhope and Ross each entering two teams. The early running was made by John Mills’ Woolhope team and at the half-way stage they were unbeaten and led the way from the St Martins team of Jim Knowles who had lost only one of their 4 matches at that point. Ian Roe’s Ross team had a strong second session, however, and wins against both St Martins and Woolhope in the second session lifted them into second place although Woolhope had established an unassailable lead before they faced Ross and took the title by a point. The final leading positions were:


Winners          Woolhope    Shirley Cox, Bryan Watkins, Anthony Rogers, John Mills   W5, D1, L1   11 points


Runners-Up    Ross            Sue Dix, Rob George, Dave Watkins, Ian Roe                 W5, L2         10 points


Third Place        Gorsley / Ross


Fourth Place      St Martins
