Jamie Hughes along with partner Sam Hewson of Lincolnshire took the British Open Pairs title being held at the Spa Centre Bridlington. Jamie and Sam have made their mark on many of the Pairs events being held on the circuit and form a very effective partnership. The pairs event with more than 150 entries is a tough event to take but they done it in style defeating Garry Thompson and Scott Waites of Yorkshire in the quarter finals, Jamie Wilson of Yorks and Gary Robson of Cheshire, for the final they overcame Steve Robertson who plys his trade in Scotland and Ryan Hogarth of Lancashire by the scoreline of 4-3.
