New Season Gets Underway 6th Oct 2008
Based on the
recent Barbarians Poll , we have decided to use different
formats during the season, to add variety to Clubnights.
The first night flicked of with a six-player round-robin.
Matches were ten minutes to enable all fixtures to be
completed. Goal-difference was disregarded, with a
shoot-out being used to separate players on equal points.

Placings: 1st Kenny Beggs,
2nd Barry Spence, 3rd Peter Morrison, 4th Nicky Moore,
5th John Hughes, 6th Alistair Morrison. John Hughes beat
