10th Ladder: Joe Finishes Season in Style 13th Aug 2007
Joe McRoberts won the final Ladder, beating Northern Ireland Champion, Davy Clegg, 3-0 in his last match to secure top spot.

Mark McKane made his first appearance, as did Nicky Moore, who travelled from Republic of Ireland. Also good to see Donal Convery back for the first time in almost a year.

Barbarians Double Up For Christmas 11th Dec 2006
The Belfast Barbarians Subbuteo Club decided to try something different at their Christmas meeting in the form of a fun doubles competition. The rules involved one player on each team attacking for half the game, while his partner defended, then swapping roles.

Three pairs played a round-robin of matches which saw the Davy Clegg / Joe McRoberts partnership come out victorious. Their first opponents were Kenny Beggs & Jim McCullough, whom they beat 1-0. Beggs & McCullough then lost 0-3 to Barry Spence & Eoin Adams, which left the latter pair only requiring a draw in the last match due to their superior goal-difference. The first half of the decider was goal-less but mid-way through the 2nd half, Clegg scored. This set up a frantic finale as Spence & Adams pressed for an equaliser. In the dying seconds, Spence was clean through but, with the goal at his mercy, he sent the ball wide and Clegg & McRoberts breathed a sigh of relief as the final whistle sounded. A thoroughly entertaining evening was rounded off with some Christmas food and drink - a great way to end the Subbuteo year.

Spence tries to score from an Adams corner but is denied by Clegg's keeper
