Sunday brought some success for Harrogate Montpellier PC in the 2019 Northern Pairs competition in Bridlington.
Club Captain and pairs partner, Richard Burrow from Leeds PC, were crowned the 2019 Northern Pétanque Pairs Champions!
Winning all of their morning qualifying matches, they came through the knockout stage in the afternoon to win the final in front of a large crowd of fellow competitors and spectators.
Charles commented, “We had great weather, and high quality competitive play.”
The annual RCMT event was held at Leeds PC in Headingley on Saturday, attracting 28 players and a ‘good crowd’ of Roy’s family and friends.
Roy was a founder member of the Leeds club, on Glen Road, with the Harrogate Chairman, Nigel Clay, in 2006. Roy sadly passed away in 2016.
After a round of triples and doubles, the ‘match’ was well won by the home team, who retained the Roy Cotton Memorial Trophy for another year.
Thanks to Leeds PC for their great hospitality!

We may be ready for a home fixture in 2020!
The ROY COTTON MEMORIAL event is on
SATURDAY 7th SEPTEMBER!!!!
All other details are correct.

Jim, Nigel, Sandy, Brenda, Sue and Charles will now take on Heckmondwike, or Huddersfield, in the Final in a couple of weeks’ time, and probably on neutral ground at the Leeds terrain in Headingley.
HMPC won both the Gents and Ladies Triples, and mixed pairs wins for Brenda/Charles and Sue/Nigel secured a resounding victory.
Details for the Final to follow.
HMPC celebrated Yorkshire Day 2019 with an evening melee.
Three players were undefeated at the end of the competition, so the event was decided by a super shoot-out, which was won by Keith.
Congratulations to Keith.
