Walls First in Fisherwick Quickplay

The Fisherwick Quickplay, held over the first two Monday nights in March, attracted a fine turnout in terms of numbers and quality. Queen's Theology student, Eamonn Walls, recorded an impressive 5/6 total to clinch outright first place ahead of second-placed Michael Waters' 4.5 points tally and the other 17 competitors.

The decisive moment came when the top two players (in seeding and final standing) met themselves. Eamonn beat Michael but still had to come through a tough final round match against Ian Woodfield, who at that stage shared the lead with the North Belfast player. Woodfield, however, couldn't prevent Walls enjoying his fifth win of the competition to secure top spot.

The one blip in Eamonn's tournament came on the opening Monday when he lost to Methody schoolboy Ananda Srinivasan. Srinivasan himself remained in contention throughout, but went down in his final round encouner with Waters. The Fisherwick board one's bid for victory was not only stymied by the defeat to Walls, but also through an earlier draw conceded to Norman McFarland.

The various grading prizes went to Fisherwick veterans Alex Beckett and Martin Kelly (who each earned 4 points) and also to Cathal Murphy of the RVH club.
