Yesterday was the first triangular tournament between Heckmondwike, Huddersfield and Mirfield. It was invented by Clive, Secretary at Heckmondwike and looks likely to be copied by Huddersfield and Mirfield. 3 Clubs sent 4 teams of mostly pairs but some triples and each team played 4 games, 2 against each of the other teams. Sounds complicated but it worked well and after 3 and a half hours Heckmondwike had won 5 of their 16 games, Mirfield 7 and the winners were Huddersfield with 12 wins. A surprising result but very welcome.
The visiting teams were playing on a different surface to their home terrains but that’s one of the reasons the tournament was held. Add a beautiful sunny day, a lovely friendly crowd and lashings of tea, coffee and biscuits in the sumptuous pavilion and it made for a great day out. Here’s to the next event in another endless series. Well done the Greenheads! The team colours looked great.
