It was the 2nd evening of the new season with another Rapid Play game and a Club Championship game taking place.
The first Club Championship was a tough game between John Lydon and Mike Byrne, which John eventually managed to win and become the early tournament leader.
In the Rapid Play Steve Barnes won against Bill Henderson, but Bill still remains the leader in that tournament.
The new season is now up and running.
It was a quiet opening night with just 2 rapid play games being played. Bill Henderson won both of them against Bill Hardwick and Alan Little respectively, making Bill Henderson the early tournament leader.
Carlisle lost the annual Eden Cup to Penrith 5.5 – 3.5.
The match wasn’t decided until the final game. John Lydon’s game was the last to finish. John needed to win his game for the match to be drawn, but he wasn’t able to do so and ended up losing his game.
