Mid-winter competition heats up

The Club welcomed no less than four new faces this week as competition heated up at the mid way stage of the Winter Cup. David Scott held off in a typically tight battle against John Whibley, and now leads the competition outright after three rounds, ahead of Guy Burns half a point behind. The game of the night was between top seed Ross Jackson and last year’s winner David Paul, which went late into the evening. Any chances of a win looked only to be with David, but tight and accurate defense eventually saw the players agreeing a draw. Newcomers Chris and Pavlo also fared well, both coming away with a win on their first outing. Full results can be found here.
