TWO brothers have battered the competition after seeing their family business crowned Chippy of the Year for the second year in a row.

Andy and Paul Georgiou, who run Green Lane Chippy, were once again crowned the finest fryers in the North West in the prestigious competiton organised by pie manufacturer Holland’s.

Customers voted in droves for the Leigh eatery, which opened a restaurant last year to run alongside its established takeaway business.

Andy and Paul, who started out in catering almost 40 years ago working alongside their father, attributed their success to using the finest-quality ingredients and said they are looking forward to battling it out for a hat-trick of wins next year.

Andy, 52, said: “We’re delighted and would like to thank all our loyal customers who voted for us.

“The restaurant opening has gone very well and we’ve also introduced a bigger choice of gluten-free food, which has proved very popular.

“We’re going to keep pushing to improve our standards and serve the best-quality traditional English fish and chips we can, and hopefully we will be able to win this award again.”
