Lucky win for us with Damian losing 6K+ in the fourth which would have made it close! Good wins for Bill and Roger for Witney and excellent game from Andy C of Northants against our sub. Good sociable night against a quality team.

2nd Leg TBA
A very close game on the night, Ian played the table very well, the rest of us all struggled to get to grips with it and we were very pleased to come away with a 3-2 win, Pete Lee v Keith Hollis was a particularly close nail biter! With Pete just managing to catch Keith before the bar dropped.
