Pairs Competition & Richard Pither RIP

The Pairs Competition was played this evening. As usual, it reached the semi-finals in most streams with one quarter final to play. The outstanding matches will be played on Finals Night at Desborough in July.

One semi-final will be between George & Richard of Desborough B vs Brian and Geoff of North Star.

The quarter final is between David & Paul of Ark Angels vs Joey & Debbie of Ivy Leaf A. The winner of this game will play Bob & Malcolm also of Ivy Leaf A.

It is with deepest regret that we learned of the death over the weekend of Richard Pither, past secretary of Maidenhead & District Cribbage League. Richard was secretary of the League for around 20 years, standing down in 2010.

Despite failing health Richard remained an active member of the local cribbage community especially at the Bird In Hand in Henley where he was the team captain for many years.

The League extends its sympathies to his family and will continue to honour his memory through the Richard Pither Challenge Trophy, one of two knockout team competitions held during the winter season.
