On Friday 15th of September W.A Cooke & Sons held our 2017 company party. The event is a great opportunity for our Engineering, Site Services & Watermark Projects divisions to come together. While not everyone could make it, we had a great turnout with 22 people attending.
This years event….Crown Green Bowling!
With breakfast had and teams picked we took to the green-
Right from the off there were some clear favourites (funnily enough not those who’d been bragging about how they were North West’s Regional Champion 5 years running “back in the day”…) with 2 teams finishing the group stages without a single loss!
The knockout stage quickly whittled the teams down and saw the top 4 head in to the Semi-Finals!
Semi Final Fixtures:
Billy Cooke & Mark Exley VS Simon Cooke & Marcin Syrek
Jeremy Cooke & Liam Kelly VS Alistair Fielding & Colin Hadfield
With his eye firmly on the prize Simon had no reservations about beating his son Billy with a 7-4 victory to see his team through to the finals while Jeremy & Liam showed their true form with a whopping 8-2 win against their opponents.
Jeremy Cooke & Liam Kelly VS Simon Cooke & Marcin Syrek
In an epic battle, equal only to that of the titans vs the olympians, the finals saw both teams perform admirably, heading into the last end drawing at 4-4.
However, there can only be one winner and, keeping to his usual form Liam put his team in a great position with an early point in the final end but it was Jeremy Cooke’s signature ricochet shot that secured a 2-0 win meaning a 6-4 triumph overall.
Thanks to everyone for coming and making it a fantastic day!
