HIGHWORTH were the most successful club at the Swindon and District men’s annual championships held at Westlecot last Saturday.

They lifted three of the 10 titles, while Westlecot won two trophies as did Royal Wootton Bassett men.

Highworth’s Mark Richman enjoyed a comfortable 21-8 win over clubmate Richard Young in the Officers Cup, while Shaun Hicks along with wife Joanna and Stuart Murray won the mixed triples with a 23-12 win over Wanborough.

The treble was completed by Highworth in the Eddie Wells charity triples when they thrashed Supermarine 86-35 Westlecot’s John Thomas took the plaudits in the O60 singles with a 21-14 win over Wroughton’s Joe Stout. And Westlecot’s second victory came in the triples when Paul Kistle, Huw Dawson and Ian Jefferies beat fellow club colleagues John Wilson, Kevin Carter and Mike Jackson 20-13 in the final.

But Westlecot suffered another reverse though as Brian Whittingham and Keith Williamson lost in the pairs final to Purton duo Dave Hall and Colin Baker 21-15.

Bassett’s Kyle Anderson won the U25 singles beating clubmate George Twine 21-8.

The duo then combined with George’s dad Neil Twine and Dave Godwin to inflict Wroughton’s second defeat of the day 15-8 in a low scoring rinks final.

Robbie Ferguson had a comfortable 21-9 win over Garrard’s Chris Payne in the champion of champions singles but went down alongside Chris and Deanne Davis in the mixed triples final to Highworth 23-12.
