  3. Young, Colin 1427 1-0 Emery, Keith 1533
  4. Kelly, Conor 1378 1-0 Flood, Raymond 1442

So the A Team end the successful defence of their title with an expectedly comfortable win. Didn’t see any of the games, but they were all completed fairly quickly against the no doubt brave efforts of their opponents, who unfortunately now drop into Division 2.

A marked contrast to the other contest of the evening, featuring two sides battling for their own survival. All the games were still playing into the 11th hour, all fiercely contested into the endings. In the end, the 2-2 scoreline secured both sides position in the 1st Division for next season. The only game I can offer is my own – an horrifically typical example of my inability to get a result from any favourable/level position the last few years, and a stark illustration of needing to take the hint. But it does illustrate how competitive the match was!
