SELWAY’S ONLY GONE AND WON THE 3 REDS!
Those were the words, with the odd expletive, of a team mate on hearing that after many years of trying and four near misses, Ray Selway had won the annual Seaton League 3 reds tournament. Ray beat all-comers that included three Chard players before finishing off Neil Wilmington in the final. This year there was the added incentive of prize money for the top four places, kindly donated by Graham Ward & Sons Tiling. Chard Conservative club hosted the event and provided excellent table conditions and superb refreshments. Several big guns went out early yet again, in what is always an enjoyable event bringing the league players together to socialise and reminisce old times.
