Friday 12th May was the date Crewe became champions of the NSDCA for the first time since the club was resurrected by Dave Price and 4 colleagues in June 2014 !!
Martin Burns has captained the “A” team with distinction this season and has been able to field the most consistent team in the league, with himself as ever-present alongside Harry Gardiner and Karl Lockett, while top board Bart Fajfer has played 9 of the 11 matches to date. With one match remaining the league title was secured as Cheddleton A beat Fenton A on Friday to make it impossible for Fenton to catch our own “A” team.
With an outstanding set of performances, Harry has led the player charts scoring 9.5 from 11 so far, with Karl just behind on 7.5 pts. Special praise must go to Bart who has faced the strongest players in the league and still managed to achieve a success rate of over 60% on board 1. Skipper Mart may have only scored 4/11 to date, but has taken on the board 1 mantle whenever necessary and allowed Harry & Karl to bat lower down the order to achieve the big scores.
Congratulations to Martin and the team – photo to be added
