Ed Furniss (Rowditch BC) becomes only the fourth player in the history of the Derbyshire Merit (going back to 1911) to retain the title after taking the spoils at Arkwright Town BC. He beat Dougan Tubey (Belvedere) in the final 21-10 who himself was looking for his third Merit title. Ed now goes on to the BCGBA Champion of Champions at The Waterloo on 29th September. Well done Ed. A great acheivement.
