Wayne Kelly Wins National National Scrabble Championships With Caromel Travails

by | 6th, November 2011

WAYNE Kelly is the British National Scrabble Champion of 2011. Warrington Wayne beat Southampton’s Gary Oliver, 39, by way of words such as “caromel”. You , of course, know that caomel means to turn into caramel. It was worth 69 points. He also scored well (74 points) “travails”.

To Wayne go the title and a £2,000 cash prize at the event in central London.

Says he:

“I was really up against it for most of the competition. There were some tough games. I was really nervous about the final – it is so much easier to play when no-one else is watching your every move.”

You may recall Wayne from his showing as runner up on the 1994 Countdown season. He does:

“I really didn’t want to settle for second place again. I am so happy to have won.”

He is delighted, chuffed and maxifghyed – look it up.
