And so, #tourneetime2016 comes to an end. The last of our summer Tournaments has drawn to a close.
We ran six this year, at Tutbury Castle, Delapre Abbey, and at Ashby De La Zouch castle. All were well received and great fun to stage. Those that came to support us were wonderful, and we really appreciate all your cheering (and booing..)
So, with all the score done and dusted.. let’s recap on the points!
DELAPRE ABBEY (BATTLE OF NORTHAMPTON)
ASHBY DE LA ZOUCH CASTLE
|1st||Harrington (Winner by tie break)||33|
So, in terms of tournament victories, the 2016 table looks like this:
Joint honours for the brothers by marriage, namely Sir William Harrington and Sir Thomas Pilkington.
However the results are more interesting when looking at the consolidated scores from the full season:
It should be noted that some tournaments had more points on offer than others. Delapre and Ashby had the axe and shield round; and Ashby Day 1 did not run the Knight Knockout round.
Despite not winning a tournament, Mortimer’s overall consistency places them second this year and only four points behind the Pilkington team.
Mortimer – always the Bridesmaid and never the bride? Perhaps this will change in 2017.
Thanks to all those who took part, and all our fans out there who came along and watched us.
