Following last weeks dip in form (only a peel) Dave was looking to wrap up his second championship in a week. (Last week he won the Currie and Balerno Kettle League). However he was up against a resurgent Willie Kerr who was not about to make it easy for him. True to form, Team Munro was only able to win two ends while the Kerr Squad scored in five ends. Unfortunately for team Kerr, they were only allowed a single each time while Team Munro Snr took a four and a two to secure the match AND the Wingate crown by 6 - 5.
This represents a hat trick for Dave, having won it for the last two seasons. We will have to create a Hall of Fame to induct him into as he is the first member to take a hat trick since my records begin (1891). It could also be noted that Dave has also won our Presidents Cup, three times in a row, again the only person to do so. Before he is overly consumed with his own greatness, he still has a bit of catching up to do as Lindsey has won the ladies points for seven straight years.
Dave has occasionally been assisted (and hindered by his team of Graeme Maguire, Colin Baird and Richard Taylor.
In the other game Sandy powered to a 13 - 8 win over the absent James Logan and moves himself into second place and now only needs to secure another 1 point to guarantee himself safe in the Wingate for a second year.
