Tony Roche won his first Veterans Merit Crown at Broseley in the extreme heat. His hardest game was 1st round in beating former winner Alan Boulton 15, as after that he dispatched Derek Flattley 9 in the Semi Finals and then Cedric Bancroft in the final by the same score. Cedric had come through two close games to get to the final, beating Keith Owen 17 and then Frank Turner Memorial Open Winner Bill Tarrell 19 in the Semis.
Thank you to Broseley for hosting the finals and looking after us so well again.
