Colman and Coates win back the SCF ‘Armada’ for Phyllis Court

Phyllis Court representatives Frances Colman and Robin Coates won the SCF AC Handicap ‘Armada’ tournament. The pair were undefeated and delighted, especially as Robin is such a novice at the AC game – so much so that he had only played one full game of AC before. The experienced hand of Colman guided the new man throughout but he played his part too with some deft strokes. The win at Hamptworth today, sees that Armada trophy return to Phyllis Court for the first time since 2014. Colman has now won the Armada four times and is the only person to do so (she previously won with Chris Roberts in 2011, 2013 and 2014)
