MID SUSSEX FINALS NIGHT 2019     (Wednesday 5th June 2019 at the Hassocks Hotel)

Finals Night 2019 was the night it finally all came good for Richard Wooton as he landed the Mens Singles and Open Doubles titles to add to the Mid Sussex Masters and Mens Highest Break  & Highest Score awards which were already in the bag.   His team United Services Club A were also Premier League, Team Cup and Charity Cup runners-up.

HHUSC A – R-up in Premier Div, Team Cup & Charity Cup (l.to r. Richard Wooton, Ben Procter, Andy Guy, Graham Sparksman)

Brothers-in-arms: HHUSC B – Div 1 Champs and Team Plate Wnrs (l. To r. Steve King, Chris Kirkham, John Lear, Paul Jobbins, Ian Giffen)

Steve also won the divisional Best Performance and Ian the Lower Division Singles.

HASSOCKS A were Premier Champs by a massive margin of 17 points.  Not only that, but they went through the entire league season undefeated (something that has only happened twice before in 40 years !)

Captain Derek Taylor (2nd on r.) won the Best Performance with a couple of weeks to spare, and was Masters R-up, whilst  Lorraine Hall  won her 13th M-S Ladies Singles title and teamed up with  Peter Edwards to become Mixed Doubles runners-up.

HASSOCKS B were Team Plate R-u, plus Barry West (r. in picture) was runner-up in the Div.1 Singles

BHCC (l.to r. Neil Higgins, Trevor Appleby, Ros Appleby, Paul Barnett, Nick Brown) retained the Team Cup, beating HHUSC A exactly as they had done a year ago. There was also a clutch of extra silverware for both Neil and Ros, as Neil was Mens Singles Runner-up and once again Senior Singles champ (that makes it five !) - whilst Ros was Ladies Singles Runner-up and (with Neil) Open Doubles Runner-up. To make an unique ‘Treble’ Ros was also in the Mixed Doubles final with Paul Barnett, this time emerging a Winner !

The Plough were surprisingly not involved on Finals night but at least they managed to retain the Roy Wells Charity League, making it three in a row and Jan Bithell once again took both the Ladies Highest Break and Highest Score awards. They finished the season in 3rd place, one above last year’s champs Windmill Z who imploded in their final league match and finished potless !
