Stafford Sunday Ladies Singles Knockout - Pippa Steele Trophy
Played on Sunday 21st October 2017
Venue Kennys Sportsbar
Congratulations to Irene Wood on becoming ladies Champion for the 3rd time in row. She overcame the challenge of another 3 time ladies champion in Charlotte Shelley 4-1 in the Final. The match was a lot closer then the score line suggests as both players showed off their county experience.
Irene, however was to work a lot harder to reach the final then Charlotte as she had come through a play off group with Tasha Farmer and Lynda Simpson. Irene had a close match against Tasha winning 2-1 and then played another county ladies player Lynda and won 2-0.
In the semi final Charlotte was drawn against Charlene Marsden-Till and ran out 3-0 Winner. Irene then played Kirsty Lawrence, Kirsty the week before, inflicted a first defeat over Irene but this time Irene made amends and won 3-0 to reach the Final.
