Mixed Fortunes for our 2 teams.

AB1 did not find Bolton in mid- January a happy, hunting ground. They had a very tough draw on Saturday and lost 5-1 to a strong, Manchester Manticores 1 team. John Garnett and David Levems secured consolation draws.
The AB2 had a much better result winning 4-2 against a higher -graded Manchester Manticores 2, with draws for Alex Combie and Maurice Hill and excellent wins for Mike Naylor, Dave Flynn and Bob Taylor.

 Saturday was honours even, between the 2 clubs, but paired against each other again the next day, the Manchester ouffit asserted. Their first team beat AB2 5-1, with consolation draws for Mike Naylor and Bob Taylor. The MM2 team, losers to AB2 on the Saturday, hit back to defeat AB1 4-2. The bright spots were draws by Andy Walker and Richard Truman and a win for Derek Jarvis.

After 4 rounds AB1 have 2 match points and sit well down the table. AB2 , our lower graded team head them in the table with 3 points!
