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|
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.
