Con Fleming flies the flag for King’s Chase
The men’s county pairs competition for our areas is coming to a climax with three of the four duos left in the competition hailing from the Romford club, writes Dave Evans.
The all-Romford clash will see mighty pair Steve Mitchinson and Nigel Smith face a mouthwatering clash against Trevor Sayer and Mark Nullmeyers.
Mitchinson and Smith secured their progress as they proved too strong for Mark Hodges and Brian Payne, from the King’s Chase club.
In the end they won by 21-9 to book their date in the final, while Sayer and Nullmeyers were even more emphatic as they took on Dave King and Russell Gurnett and stormed to a resounding 21-5 victory.
Something has got to give in the final, though, and the question is can Smith and Mitchinson end Nullmeyers remarkable run in all competitions.
The other area final does boast the one non-Romford team in the competition.
Con Fleming and Adam Smith took on Jamie Holmes and his partner in an all-King’s Chase battle in the last round.
Fleming came through 21-14 and they will now take on Romford’s Frank Abbott and Scott Reading, who overcame Mick Rigby and his partner from Haynes Park 21-16.
The area finals take place next Tuesday evening.
