Crewe Win Jamboree

Crewe entered one team in the under 130 Newcastle jamboree last night. On paper we were out graded against most teams. The underdogs Doug,Dave P,Les and Nigel had a good start in the first round with 2 wins and a draw putting the team on 2.5 points out of a possible 4. In the second round it was a fight between Crewe, Fenton and the host Newcastle. The Crewe team were fantastic in the second round and won all their games. This put Fenton third  on 4.5 points Newcastle Second on 5 points. Crewe were clear winners on 6.5 points and win another trophy to add to our collection.
