Chris Kaberry wins his 5th title in North Shields

Whilst there was no doubt about the winner today there were certainly some contentious decisions.  Well, depending on who's point of view you're looking at it from.  We could talk all day about the need for refereeing in these small regionalized tournaments, but hey, we need to get home for tea.... It's cup final day!

Round 1 saw Chris Kaberry beat Dave Brothers 4-0. However, Dave's game is improving all the time. Jeff Parsons edged out Andy Mill 1-0 in another tight contest.

Round 2 saw a close match between Andy and Dave. Dave winning 1-0.  The crunch game was decided with Chris opening up Jeff's right flank to score twice in a three minute spell.  Score 2-0 to Chris.

Final round saw Jeff comprehensively beat Dave 4 - 1. Andy and Chris played at hotly contested game to say the least.  Andy took great pleasure in taking the lead and Chris took equal pleasure in equalizing.  Final score 1-1.  Was it a fair result?  Answers on a post card please.
