Roberts beats Fulford

Chris Roberts

Chris Roberts (Phyllis Court) will be boring everyone senseless all winter with the tale of his shock defeat of five time World AC Champion, Robert Fulford, at the English National GC Championships (aka. The Ascot Cup’) at Hurlingham this weeknd. Unfortunately that 10-4 win was one of only two wins all tournament and Roberts left disappointed by his efforts and four ‘Golden Hoop’ defeats (three 9-10s and one 7-6). As the heavy rain puddled on two adjoining courts, Fullford went on to contest the final and was defeated 2-1 by Stephen Mulliner.
