Septuagenarian Lightning Champion

Terry Whitton was in imperious form to win the Lightning Championship with a 100% score 6/6.

There was a fine performance also from Emmet Clarke clear second on 5/6, though not having played Terry, probably due to his second round loss, so that he came up on the rails in the finishing straight.

The podium was completed by a crowded third step with no fewer than five players finishing on 4/6.

1 – Terry Whitton, 6/6; Lightning Champion
2 – Emmet Clarke, 5;
=3 – Peter Nickals, Paul Barclay, Jonathan Newby, Matthias Lataille, David Smith, 4;
