Cardiff Handicap Pairs Stats

This week sees the final of the Cardiff Handicap Pairs between Dan Bridle & Alan Morgan and last year’s runners-up Ronnie Allen & Alan Hurley, so here at the CDSA we thought we’d take a look back at the history of a competition that started back in 1983 as the First Division Pairs with the first final seeing Keith May and Dave Peters defeating Steve Wellbeloved and Ian Bartley.

The competition continued as the Premier League Pairs from 1986 to 2007 with our records (not complete) showing Spencer Symmons as the most successful winner with five titles, including four between 2004-2007, with the last three being with John Moore.

Due to the reduction in the number of divisions in the league, the competition was renamed the Cardiff Handicap Pairs in 2008, with the first winners being Kevin Brown and James Llewellyn, with a different winning pair each year in the decade since. The highest break in the competition came in the 2011-12 season when Daryl Wilson recorded an outstanding 138 break, with Kishan Hirani registering a 122 in the same year. Hirani also scored the other century to be made in the competition in 2009 with a 101 break.
