Full Houses

Congratulations to Jim Eccleson of Oxton Conservatives who finished the season on a high with a full house on Monday 27th February. In division two, Kris Jones of Aardvarks scored his first full house ever on Tuesday 28th February, so deserves an even bigger cheer. Well done to both players.

INDIVIDUAL RESULTS

Wayne Shaw of Gladly Stoned has reclaimed the Martin Prendergast Cup by winning division one, while Mike McDonough will receive the Andrea Jones Trophy for division two. Although one game still has to be played, his lead is unassailable. Congratulations to both winners, who will be competing against each other next season.

Wallaseyans - Division 2 Champions

There is one match outstanding in Division2, the result of which will not affect the final positions.

Congratulations to Wallaseyans who have won the Division 2 title by the narrowest margin, with victory over Nelson's Fifth Column on the very last question.

Well done to Nelson's, as well, on their promotion. Aardvarks managed to squeeze into third position in their last match. Playing in Division 2 next year will be Hoylake LTC and Legionnaires, with Plasterers Arms doing the double over Gladly Stoned to save themselves in their last match.

Thanks to all Division 2 Secretaries from Dave and Steve Lomas, for the prompt reporting of scores and also thanks from Pam and Curt for a very high return of score sheets this season allowing an accurate calculation of Individual stats. To be confirmed after the last series of matches, but the winner of the Andrea Jones Shield is Mike McDonough of Nelson's - congratulations Mike!

All that remains is to wish good luck to all those teams taking part in the Absent Friends KO Handicap Cup which starts next Monday.
