SOLIHULL Marsh Lane A team just squeezed home against their B team last Friday, winning by just four points.

What made it so close was that Fergus Allison (A team) and Garry Timmins (B team) were the last two players on the green. Fergus had crept into the lead at 9-8, then Garry took it back until they were 16 across, Fergus then went 19-17 ahead. If Garry had then won, the teams would have made a draw.

The players then went to 19 across and finally Fergus scored the winning 2. Big cheers and much relief from SML A.
