Tyneside AC Handicap Tournament
As the last round of games commenced four players were tied on four wins each. With Chris Roberts (Phyllis Court) and Julian Gibson (Middlesbrough) meeting in their final match, one of them was bound to be in the mix. Bill Humphreys (Australia) and Fiona Crompton (York) were the other two in with a chance of featuring in a three-way tie-breaker.
Chris duly triumphed against Julian +11 to be "leader in the club house" and had to wait for Bill and Fiona to finish their games. In the end they both lost +5T, Bill to Frances Colman (Phyllis Court) and Fiona to Andrew Killick (Middlesbrough) leaving Chris as the clear winner.
