needing a draw to ensure promotion.
On Saturday the Ladies gave us a great start with a 4-2 win gained by Debbie Essam who won the match award with a 3-0 win, Linda Reed 3-1, Janet Driscoll 3-2 and Vicky Rannow 3-1.
The Men's team playing a team unbeaten this season gave an excellent performance to win 7-5 with wins by David Pinnuck 3-2, Wayne Dawson 3-2, Wayne Stubbings 3-0, match award winner Peter Brown 3-1, John Creed 3-1, Eron Walkes 3-0 and Lee White 3-2.
This gave us a 11-7 overall lead at halfway going int Sunday's games.
It did not start to well as the Ladies lost the first four games to bring the overall scores level but Jodie Alligan with a match award 3-1 win over their top player and a 3-0 win by Jane Phillips gave us a two point lead it was now up to the Men's team.
Not to be outdone the Men's team also lost the first four games before match award winner Ian Clarkson won 4-1 followed by Tony Cox winning 4-1 this brought the overall scores level once again, we had now six games to go but the only player to play well was Chris Hudson who won 4-3.
A day that started so promisingly ended up a disaster was it nerves, pressure or some other outcome to only require seven games and only score five is really not good enough for a team at the top of the League so promotion that looked like a foregone conclusion just faded away.
