The Annual match between the club Captain Paddy Tallon and Club Manager Jonathan Lee was played on Saturday.

A lot of talk before the game about whose team would be successful and a lot of 'Fergie' mind games all added to the tension. A huge turn out on the day saw over 75 members taking part. The teams were decided the week before with both the Captain and Manager going back to their school playground days and taking picks of who would represent who, not sure who would have been the last pick of the day and I'm sure we will never know!

The match itself could not have been any tighter and, with only two games to come in, it still could have gone to either team.

Club captain Paddy Tallon and his partner halved with Jonathan Lee and his partner and in the end the manager's team took the victory by one point winning 10-9.
