The last game of the 2009 Inter Area competition will be at the Lamb & Flag Hailey (nr Witney) on Friday 4th December when Witney A play host to last year's Champions, Wallingford B.
Wallingford B are 5-0 and about 38K up from the first leg so Witney have it all to do. We are quietly confident..... ;D ;D
We hope to see lots of people there, perhaps even the Inter Area Secretary?
Tony, I know it's the last game of this years Inter Area Cup, but has the NEW Secretary allowed you to have a 4 day extension on the 2nd leg?
As I've said before, it's no good having rules if teams are going to abuse them, in the Inter Area, teams have always known that if they haven't got the result in by the closing date they would have been thrown out, so does this mean that all teams can have an extension next year?
Rule 11 Closing date rules must be strictly adhered to in order to avoid disqualification. Each round is allocated TWO FULL MONTHS to complete. First round matches to be completed by the end of March, Second round by end of May, Quarter Finals by the end of July, Semi Finals by the end of September and the Final BY THE END OF NOVEMBER.
Proud holder of the World Record score for Off The Spot of 25,950.
Well, the inevitable happened and Wallingford B won the 2009 Inter-Area Trophy in a fairly one sided game against Witney A. They won 3-2 at the Lamb & Flag to take the title for the second year running and with a match score of 8-2, it was thoroughly deserved. Butch Lawson took the highest away break with a near run-out of the Flag table, amassing nearly 13K.
Well done Wallingford B and I hope the post match curry went down well!
It was good to see Tony Ewen presenting the trophies and we thank him for making the long journey across Oxfordshire to attend.
