Dave Butler took 2 steps closer to the league title with wins over Colin Berry and Fraser McKenzie. But it wasn’t all plain sailing. Against Berry, Butler held a 1-0 half-time lead although he really should have been further ahead. Berry, under pressure for most of this match managed a second half equaliser to put the pressure on to Butler. Butler, however, held his nerve and secured the winning goal with 5 minutes remaining. Two points behind Tom Burns, Butler must defeat Dave Houston in his final match to retain the title. It wasn’t a good night for Berry who lost by the same margin to Colin Day and by 2-0 to John Halpin who leap-frogged Berry in the league table. Colin Day, meanwhile, moved above Dave Gladman into third place.
