Phill Scarr won the Cumbria Cup

The Cumbria Cup was won by Phill Scarr of Middlesborough, in his first-ever advanced event. Phill had wins over top seed and manager Dave Nick +4, Paul Rigge +4 and Charles Waterfield +6 to get to the final, where he met Crake Valley player Tom Griffith.

Tom had beaten Bob Burnett +5 and clubmate Peter Wardle +5 on his way to his first final in many years. In the final, Tom got away to a good start taking the first game +20. As the second game started, the very rare occurrence of a sudden downpour at Crake seemed to spur Phill on and he found his rhythm, which had served him so well all weekend, taking the game +24. Phill then powered away to take the third and final game also +24, with Tom struggling to adjust to the pace of the lawn, and with one eye on the runner-up's prize of a bottle of fine wine, donated by Angus and Debra of the Farmers Arms at Lowick.
