Our Ladys A Test Leaders

Our Ladys A were unfortunate not to come away with a draw in their trip to leaders Formby Club B. Chris Connelly, Graham Clark and Luke Palethorpe (39 and 21) opened up a three point advantage for Formby before Phil Cummins put in a fine performance to beat Mark Evans. Dan Mycek pulled a second one back before Jimmy Tristram overcame Ian Dickinson on the black to secure a 4-2 victory for the hosts. Aughton Institute B consolidated their fourth place spot with a 4-2 defeat of Formby Club A. Ian Barnes (24) and Andy Kenyon were winners for Formby A, Andy coming from miles behind to beat Gordon Dale on the black, Carl Finlayson and Ian Lindsay maintained their excellent form with victories for Aughton. Our Ladys B claimed their second scalp of the season beating Flanagans 4-2 and leapfrogging above them in the table. Mark Winkley and Allan Parker stood out for the hosts whilst it was good to see Terry Barlow and Dan Radcliffe winning for Flanaganas.
