The final also saw the completion of the Order of Merit. Whilst Semi and actual Finalist players clearly have the edge in potentially accumulating more match points, this was by no means a certainty.

From a Singles OOM perspective, some pretty solid performances by Woolston Manors’ Mazhar Iqbal in earlier rounds saw off any newcomers.  Photo here shows Maz and his well-deserved trophy, at his home club and courtesy of Woolston Jubilee Captain Zulfi Ali. Maz’s single halved match of 7 performances saw him win out to the top spot. Well done Maz!

For the Pairs OOM, the Warley Park player Matt Thomas  (seen below on the right hand image) very narrowly missed out on the top spot with a five out of six match wins, but was pipped to the post by a further win in his last match for Warley Park’s  Robert Higgins - who secured his final point (and therefore the OOM)

Rob is seen below (left hand image) receiving his trophy from Colin Firth, who was Jubiliee Cup Chaiman prior to Phil Redhead.

Another final score of 6.5 v 2.5 would suggest an emphatic defeat, but really victory came in a period of around 20-30 minutes where the 2017 Champions started to edge ahead, turning the board “SBN Red” for Chris Williamson’s team, egged on by their supporters, and seen here in their bright red shirts (clashing incongruously with the Jubilee Cup committee red uniforms too).  Significantly, SBN won all of their singles matches, but only Richard Fryer’s 4&3 victory over Benton’s Kevin Kimber stands out.  Noel Cooper’s Benton Pairs, (Benton shown here in their light blue team colours) had more of a positive result, with erstwhile Jubilee Cup Captain Dave Claxton and his partner Brian Blakesley giving Stoke by Nayland a bloody nose with a 4&3 victory. Notably SBN’s Byron Long secured a further point in his bid for the top of the Merit leader-board, against my personal nemesis Dave Curtis who beat me in the Quarter Finals -not much went right for Dave (even losing a 7 iron on the day) but still only a 2&1 defeat, which would ultimately maintain him as 7th in the OOM for the entire competition – well done Dave.

The competing teams are shown here in the glorious sunshine ahead of their match. In White shirts are player-Captain Zulfi Ali’s Woolston Manor team, including singles Order of Merit leader Mazhar Iqbal (on his way to another winning point in the OOM). All against John Newman’s Warley boys in Navy blue. Zulfi led out his team and battled hard in a game that rarely varied from All Square through the 18 holes against Warley’s Mark Dowling, before ultimately securing a rare half point. The ultimate score of 6.5 v 2.5 belies what Neil and I were seeing as we roamed around providing the mobile scoreboards to the teams, with only a couple of large wins for Warley - with Nick Pulham defeating Darren Westover 5&4, and the first Pairs match securing a 4&2 victory over their Woolston adversaries as a large crowd of spectators gathered at the tricky down-hill, dog-leg right 16th hole. Fundamentally a solid victory for most of Warley’s single players, and an emphatic defeat of Woolston’s Pairs secure Warley a place at Crondon Park for the final

Defeating Warley Park, Stoke by Nayland successfully won to the top spot on 24th September 2018, and playing at Crondon Park GCC. In equal measure, commiserations to the runner ups, and a hardy well done to Chris William’s successful team.

Commiserations therefore to Warley Park who were only defeated 6.5 to 2.5 winning points, and in a game which (as usual) really could have gone anyway as we watched it unfold in the afternoon of the 24th .  

 The final position for the “road to Crondon park” can be seen here and below

Please hover your mouse over the table beneath the image of Byron and Colin to see the final 5 places of the singles Order of Merit.

Please hover your mouse over the table beneath to see the final 6 places of the Doubles Order of Merit.

Seen below is Stoke by Nayland’s Byron Long receiving his singles OOM Runner UP trophy from erstwhile Jubilee Chairman Colin Firth. Colin was our Guest of Honour at the Final dinner, thanks to his many years of service, and great to see him in good health following recent escapades!

Byron was just half a point behind Maz, and with a better hole difference so turning his one loss even to a halve would have seen him topping the title. Will Stacey from Chigwell was also not very far behind either.
