This afternoon, Chorley PS took top spot in the 2017 Annual Clubs Competition. Joint second place went to the Evolve Group and Warrington PS (who were mentioned many times throughout the competition!).
The entire competition ran rapidly and smoothly, thanks to the software systems produced by Adrian Lines, and the efforts of the ‘back room boys’ under the guidance of competition secretary Bob Robinson.
Today saw the DPI section of the Annual Clubs Competition won by Wigan 10. In the morning, Chorley PS took the lead, coming first in the open colour section, but after the morning break, Wigan 10 hit back, winning the mono section.
In the afternoon, Wigan 10 put on a superb display of nature images, with the result that they beat Chorley into second place with a score of 308 points to Chorley’s 304. Third place fell to North Cheshire PS on 290 points.
