Exmouth Runners-Up to Tiverton in Mamhead Cup

Exmouth’s win over Barnstaple on Saturday marked the end of that tournament for another year. The final table is as follows:

  Mamhead Div. 2 1 2 3 4 5 Pts F A
1 Tiverton 2 1 2 1 6 10½
2 Exmouth 0 2 1 2 5 9 7
3 Barnstaple 1 0 2 1 4
4 Teignmouth 0 1 0 2 3 6 10
5 Newton Abbot 1 0 1 0 2 7 9

Tiverton were undoubtedly deserved winners. Our fate was sealed by the topsy-turvy match against Teignmouth; a blundered rook by each side and a breathless blitz finish between Redman and Brusey that could have gone either way but finished in a draw, as did the match. The unlikeliest result was surely Newton Abbot’s last place.

Still, a good result for Exmouth, considering the unavailability of top players at times.
