Wayne is Champion

Wayne Kelly

Congratulations to Wayne Kelly, a regular player for Alford Academicals, on his success in clinching the National Scrabble Championship title and picking up a £2,000 prize.  Wayne was crowned after a tense best-of-five showdown recently in London.  The victory was all the sweeter for Wayne who has had a string of near-misses including finishing as runner-up on TV’s Countdown series 28, being one game away from qualifying for the 2011 World Scrabble Championships, and coming third in the 2011 Association of British Scrabble Players Masters title.

Details of his win can be found on the BBC News website
