A really well fought group with 66% of all possible matches played. Really well done! Now we just need to make the league bigger! Do tell your friends and let us know if there is anything we can do to grow it!

Group Summary:

This was a small round (6 players) and unfortunately Angus didn't get underway (hope you are ok and please let us know if we can help another time). But very well done to everyone for getting every other available match played. That was 4-apiece and we know it is not always easy as this league can involve some travelling. Many thanks indeed for all the effort you put in. Congratulations goes to Andrew, a well deserved winner who finished with 4 wins out of 4 and bonus points to boot! Derek is the runner up and was also on good form.
