Kevin Bates Success In Essex Singles Competition

Walthamstow and Aveling captain achieved a remarkable result to reach the Essex Singles final this year, including beating fellow Walthamstow player Karl Bunyan in the area final, and then getting past a couple of strong players in the quarter- and semi-finals.

For the final itself he came up against two-time British and current English National champion Edwards Morris, who unfortunately was just too strong in the end.

Reaching the final is a great achievement in itself, recognised by the presentation of an Essex county badge (shown in the photo), and Kevin will also be representing Essex in the National Finals in September.
