The finals for the Devon Shield were held on Friday 8th April at Devon & Exeter.

I would like to thank Adam for hosting the event and also the markers on the night.

The main final was between Crediton and Tiverton. Crediton played well and won the first three matches giving them the win. The final match of the night was between Neil Collins (Crediton) and Bruce Wheatley(Honiton) in which Bruce won giving Tiverton their only win of the night.

The plate was between Culm Valley and Sidmouth. I was told that on the last two matches they played Sidmouth won both! It was a very close match that went to 2 – 2 and it all hinged on the last match to be played. This was between Ian Jolley (Culm Valley) and Nigel Desousa (Sidmouth). I think this was the match of the night and went on for ages, good job I asked Mark Stimpson to mark it! This also went to 2-2 and ended as 15/13 to Ian, clinching the victory for Culm Valley.

Here are the results:
