NPA South West Championships 2009

AMENDED RESULTS. STEVE JENKIN who at only 24 years of age was announced as the winner of the 2009 NPA South-West is now stripped of his titles, and banned from the NPA. The NPA Committee have decided that because Heavyweight runner-up Ian Munro was prevented from receiving his first place trophy, and therefore could not compete for the Overall title, that there will now be no winner of the Overall South-West title. The South-West competition had a superb overall standard through all the classes, and was sponsored by Udo s Choice and CNP Professional - results by Michael Phillips with outstanding photography by Jay Weaver.
