Only four players attended this evening, the low turn-out in part due to the Circuit Event the previous day. It was disappointing nevertheless. As a result only four competitive matches were played, three in the league and one in the Association Cup. But the cup match between Willie Fleming and Dave Gladman will have to be played again, neither player being able to find the back of the net. It was a game of two halves with Gladman dominating the first and Fleming the second.
Tom Burns played two league matches and unfortunately for him his league title hopes took a dent. With Tom Burns two goals ahead and only three minutes left on the clock, it looked as if three points were in the bag against Willie Fleming. But two late goals for Fleming were a hammer blow to Burns’ title chances. In his second game against Dave Gladman, Burns had to wait until two minutes from the end before finally breaking the deadlock. Burns is still well ahead in the league, his two challengers Dave Butler and Barry Corr having many games in hand due to their poor attendance.
In the final league match Dave Gladman defeated John Halpin 3-0. Gladman moves into second place in the league, albeit temporarily.
