Chester beat Bury 5-2

[<<] [>>] by John Dawson at Unknown - not stated
30 May 2018 (AC - Longman Cup)

Chester beat Bury 5-2. The morning was a clean sweep for Chester though
by a very narrow margin in the two singles (John Dawson + 4 over Margaret
Eccles and Paul Taylor + 3 over Margaret Anderton) . The weather turned
grim in the afternoon and play became much more variable. John Dawson
had an early win over Ken Anderton but the other three singles went the
full distance. David Guyton ground out a solid win ( +6) over Margaret
Anderton but Phil Nuttall (last year's All England AC handicap
champion) hit another golden streak in the second half of his match with
Paul Watson to record a +11 victory for Bury. Similarly Margaret Eccles
took her revenge on Chester as she defeated Paul Taylor by + 7 despite
giving away 8 bisques.

In short a closely contested match in some pretty difficult conditions
