Tonight saw the end of Colin Day’s impressive unbeaten league run. In his first match of the evening Day was losing 1-0 at half-time to Baver Bari. He came back in the second half to level at 1-1 and thus extend the unbeaten record to 22 games. Willie Fleming was to be Day’s undoing. Fleming won by 2 goals to nil though some controversy surrounded Fleming’s opening goal after a ball had been replaced by the referee. Fleming, however, did merit the victory. Fleming did lose to Dave Gladman, the two players battling it out for fourth place. This was Gladman’s first match using his new ‘snake’ bases and he went on to win well against Colin Berry. Both Tom Burns and Dave Butler recorded victories so there was no change involving the top two. Butler had to rely on two second half goals to overcome an improving John Halpin. Day’s single point from the evening means that he will probably have to settle for third place.
The first Association Cup match of the season saw Baver Bari defeat John Halpin to reach the quarter-finals.
