Well Done to all above, the table speaks for itself where Grappenhall players were drawn against each other in the final rounds & some only dropped points to GCC opponents.  ‘Tim & Nim’ were not available for the competition older sections.

There were 3 close calls for stardom for Russell, Peter & Michael who needed to win their last game to qualify but lost, & 4 / 5 retained a Supremo title! 

Of the above 25 entrants  (among 260), 19 club members will be invited to the GigaFinals at Manchester on Sat’ 10th (U10) & Sun’11th July.
