Jamie steers England to trophy triumph
Norfolk's Jamie Chestney helped England strike gold in the Atlantic championships in Paphos (Cyprus) on Sunday.
With Somerset's John Hick at lead, Wiltshire's Graham Shadwell in the middle, and the 24-year-old Chestney at skip, the England trio charged into the knockout stage without losing a game.
In the semi- finals they defeated South Africa 18-14 before beating Scotland 14-11 in the final.
Chestney, who plays outdoor for Hunstanton and indoor for Fakenham's Gallow, said: 'We dropped a four at the end of our semi, which meant we had to play an extra end, and we conceded another four on the first end of the final – so we had to dig deep to get back into contention.
'In the final we only took the lead for the first time at 12-11 on the penultimate end..'
