Division One was won by Grandmaster Tim Cross, who pipped Martin Barkwill to the title. They both finished with 5 wins out of 6 and Tim came out on top in the play-off.

NEBA On Top

The final of the latest Bradford Monthly tournament, organised by Steve Lee and held at Napoleon’s Casino, was contested by two NEBA players, Martin Barkwill & Tim Cross.

Martin came out on top on this occasion, avenging the 2018 NEBA League One play-off defeat to Tim earlier this year.

Here he is claiming his victory handshake from Steve Lee…

Coming just one week before both Tim and Martin will represent NEBA in the UK Clubs Championship in York, it can only bode well for the club that these two great players are in such fine form.
