Tim was playing in his 1st singles final and was seeking to gain his second County title; having won the 4's back in 2012. Tim had also played a pairs final in 2003 and another fours final in 2016. Tim had 1 winner and 2 runner's up medals previously, however, he was determined to make this prestigious and most sought after trophy his.
Tim was bowling superbly alll day; in the semi-final he met Kent's most successful singles player Tim Rycraft; this only seemed to galvanise Tim as he continued his march from previous matches; with an end to spare Tim was 9-3 shots victorious, his place in his first singles final was booked!
In the final, Tim took the early ends as he found himself 3 - 0 up after two ends; however, Malcolm Nelmes found the mat, lines and pace and started to draw superbly. After 7 ends Tim was 9 - 4 down.
Tim held his nerve, dug very deep and started to turn the ends around, taking 8 shots from the final 3 ends. In fact as he played the last end her was 1 behind needing two to win. This was his day as he finished on a maximum 4 shots taking the the end and the title.
Kent gives a massive congratulations to Tim for his 1st singles title in Kent.
