Chris Thomas wins the NETFA Teesside tournament


Our second WASPA event took place in Thornaby on the 24th May 2013. The night was special for the club because we had a guest player from Lincoln Flickers, John Devaney, who came up for the nights play. John did well, only losing one game and that one only by the odd goal in three. Chris Thomas was the star of the show, scoring some remarkable goals in demolishing Mike Parnaby and Ben Staples. Neil Youngson recovered from losing his first game to win the next two and take second place overall. Chris Kaberry was helped by winning the 'bye' game, but still finished 4th and recorded one of only three positive goal differences on the night! John Bottomley was only ahead of 'bye' in the final table, but continues to improve as he gets used to his new teams. The next meeting is in June and we hope to have an increased entry at this one!

Date of next NETFA Teesside WASPA tournament will be 21st June 2013.
