Ian Mackay’s Whitaker Cup team reach the semi final with a strange game against Barrow.
The entire match was over in 45 minutes.
Dave Siddall lost against Mathew Mckenzie on board 1, Phil Walters had a walkover on board 2 as Dave Cole wasn’t able to attend. The handicap meant that Carlisle only needed a draw from one of the other games.

Congratulations, well done and good luck for the semi.
