Bees beat Newcastle D to blow open title race

The B team stung back into winning ways last night with a 2.5-1.5 victory at title chasing Newcastle D. There were wins for Karl Lockett on bd 1 and skipper Martin Gill on bd 3, backed up with a draw from Doug Barnett on bd 2. The result still leaves Newcastle D as favourites for the Div 3 title but brings Cheddleton C and D together with Alsager A all into the mix.

The B team remain in 6th place with one match remaining and only trail the league leaders by 3 pts, so close is the competition. Their final match is against Fenton A next week, who currently sit 7th in the table.
