Essendon win SCAPA Cup

Posted by Pmcook1 on May 11, 2015 at 3:25 AM

Symonds Green were the hosts for our Presentation Night and SCAPA Cup Final on Friday (08-05-15). Around 55 people attended to watch the final between Essendon and Stanstead Abbotts and then the presentation of the trophies. 

The final itself saw the fours won by Essendon and the triples won by Stanstead Abbotts after a good comeback. Therefore, going into the pairs and singles the two sides were locked on two points each.

However, Essendon had a significant shots advantage so it was likely that Stanstead Abbotts would need 3 out of the 4 points on offer. Stanstead Abbotts secured a narrow singles win to keep their hopes alive. The Essendon pair never looked in any real danger though as they won their match and with it the cup for Essendon. The final score Stanstead Abbotts 4 (25) - 4 (42) Essendon. Congratulations to Essendon who were deserving winners on the night and won the SCAPA Cup for the 2nd time in their history,the other time being way back in 1986/87.

After the final everybody enjoyed the buffet before the presentation of trophies started. Firstly, Mick Cook (County Captain) presented two new awards for this season. These were Players Player of the Season which was won by Thomas Ellis and Selection Committee Player of the Season which was won by Paul Harris. Well to done to both on being the first winners of these awards.
