Winter league news

With five rounds played and one to go the top spot in the Cornwall winter league is secure.  Graeme Kirkham and Susan Williamson of Tregony Petanque Club now have an unassailable lead from the 15 games played with 75 points and a points difference of +87.  Maximum points score from each round is 17.

Competition is hot for the next few places, however, with narrow margins between the next six teams.

Currently holding second place are Robert Herrick (Rising Sun PC) and Mike Hill (Tregony PC) with 55 points (+32), followed by two pairs with 50 points: Jock Turnham and Gordon Couch (+15) and Andrew and Sarah Jarvis of the Treleigh Arms Petanque Society (TAPS) on -5.

In hot pursuit are three teams on 48 points: Colin ‘Boot’ Booth and Pete ‘PD’ Downing of the North Inn PC, Pendeen (+44), David and Rosemary Piggin of Tregony PC (+37), and Roy Pemberton and Pete English (TAPS), with +25.

Still within reach of the podium (just!) are Richard Lapworth, Arnaud Ruetsch and Ruth Beresford, all West Penwith players, with 39 points (-31), and Kate Herrick and Peter Wayland (both Rising Sun PC) and Paul Rundle (Tregony PC), on 35 points (-15).

Fourteen teams took part in the 2011-2012 winter league competition. The final round will be played on 11 March.
