Changed: 11c11
This achievement led to sudden fame - which neither of the pair had particularly wanted, but coped as well as they could. Other international tournaments were duly entered, this time by right of world ranking rather than as wild cards, and they never failed to perform well as a pair: finally, in the following year's World Championship, came the first Grandmaster tournament Pairs victory, as Trellis and Trentwimble this time had to settle for the silver medal (and, again, partner them to the Team title.) The pair continued to be successful in both pairs and team competitions, including the separate biennial World Team Mornington Crescent Championships, in which they won the inaugural pairs event in 1956. Neither, however, achieved much in the singles - Crumblethorpe reaching only one quarter-final in two years, Chuntwumble never entered the singles at all, and neither ever went anywhere near the All-In competition, even so much as to watch it.

The pair continued to be successful in both pairs and team competitions, including the separate biennial World Team Mornington Crescent Championships, in which they won the inaugural pairs event in 1956, repeating the feat in 1958, 1960 and 1962, and also being on the winning England team three times out of four (most notably in 1962 when the team was without Trellis.) Neither, however, achieved much in the singles - Crumblethorpe reaching only one quarter-final in two years, Chuntwumble never entered the singles at all, and neither ever went anywhere near the All-In competition, even so much as to watch it.
