DELAMERE A started the Coronation Cup final with a 10 point lead over Wharton Cons – and in the end beat them by 11.
Cons, the Norley League champions, never managed to get their noses in front.
But the game that clinched the trophy for Delamere at Rudheath Private on Wednesday was Neal Ocego’s 21-11 triumph over Lester Bebbington.
The final score was 189-178 and the scores (Delamere names first): Ritchie Jamieson 16 Glynn Cookson 21; Rob Winnington 21 James Harrop 14; Brian Furber 19 Thomas Vickers 21; Gerald Merry 18 Peter Kelly 21; Martin Lloyd 18 Daniel Nixon 21; Mark Winnington 21 Stewart Bailey 12; Nicola Boulton 10 Mark Vernon 21; Tony Reardon 21 Alan Hough 15; Darren Robinson 14 Alan Vickers 21; Ocego 21 Bebbington 11.
