THE Sunderland & District Silver Jack Pairs final was played at current District President Billy Davis’s Houghton Town green.

The final saw Seaham Town’s Tommy Williamson and Brian Henderson face Roker Marine’s Bobby Graham and Ray Robinson.

The early exchanges saw Robinson open up a slim 7-3 lead after six ends only for Henderson to claw his way back to lead 10-9 with four ends to play.

With shots at a premium, Robinson collected a rare treble to lead 12-10 only for the Seaham duo to rally again to lead 13-12 going into the final end.

The last end changed hands several times, but in the end a cracking bowl from Robinson resulted in a three to take the title 15-13.
