Club night 9/12/13

Dave Butler suffered his first defeat of the season going down 1-0 to Tom Burns. The only goal came in the first half. It was a close match but Butler did have the opportunities to draw level. A great win for Burns but his chances of taking the title remain slim. He is 10 points ahead of Butler but has played 6 games more. Colin Day is in a slightly better position but both challengers require other players to take points from the champion if their dreams are to be realised.



Butler remains favourite despite defeat


Baver Bari returned after an absence and drew with Dave Gladman. Gladman dominated play but Bari was always dangerous and it took a goal two minutes from time to enable Gladman to earn a share of the points. Bari won against John Halpin but it took him until the last kick of the first half to go ahead. In his third match Bari went down 6-3 to Tom Burns. A win for Martin Phee against Halpin moved him four places up the table.




Gladman 2 2 Bari
Phee 2 0 Halpin

Bari 3 0 Halpin
Burns 6 3 Bari

Glasgow Cup


A Group 3 Glasgow Cup game between Dave Butler and Colin Day also took place. It was a game of two halves with Butler dominating the first and Day the second. Neither player, however, was able to find the net. The draw means that Day has now qualified and Butler needs only to draw with Gladman to progress.


Day 0 0 Butler
