THE close games continued over the past week in the Soldiers Club men's championship singles.
Last Tuesday just two shots separated John Leech and Len Clare after a closely-fought 32 ends, while Bill Mitchell had to fight tooth and nail for his seven-shot win over Rob Graham after 34 high class ends.
Leech and Clare were 29 shots apiece at the completion of 31 ends, however two shots on the 32-end was enough to secure victory for the multiple-championship winner Leech.
