All-conkering heroes

Have your say

WANNABE conkering heroes are wanted for the 1st Lincolnshire Yellowbelly Conker Championship in Market Deeping.

The 2007 world conker champion, Ady Hurrell, and his brother, Maurice, the 2009 Scottish champion, will be taking part prior to setting foot on the world conker stage the following day.

The Yellowbelly Conker Championship features men’s and ladies’ league competitions so that competitors can play more than one game.

Conkers and strings will be supplied and there’s a nominal £1 entry free for all those keen to relive a little of their childhood. Trophies will go to the winners.

Mr Hurrell said: “All are welcome to have a fun night of skill and pure luck.”

The event starts at The Towngate Inn at 7.30pm on Saturday, October 8.
