Congratulations to Matty Gilmore (Manor Road) who won the Charity Handicap at a wet and windy Heswall RBL. Matty beat the 2000 winner, Bill Jones (Harrison Park), 21-8 in the final to win the competition for a fourth time. Earlier, he had defeated Stephen Gilfoyle (Heswall RBL) 21-12 in the quarter-finals and Nigel Hughes (Gladstone) 21-8 at the penultimate stage. The Heswall green was in superb condition throughout the competition and is a credit to their greensman. Results of the last 8 can be viewed via the 2019 Cup Fixtures, Results link.
