This evening Bury St Edmunds ‘D’ beat their ‘E’ team 3 – 1. This result was the minimum needed to win Division 3, just half a point ahead of Ipswich F, who missed their opportunity for promotion on Tuesday when they only gained 2½ points from their final match.
The result between the two Bury teams was much closer than it seems. On Board 2, Bury E’s 11-year old Tom Roy (87) beat seasoned campaigner Dick Myhill (116), but the other three juniors, Jaden Jermy, Ralph Martin and Alwin Jose, eventually succumbed to Adam Leigh, Zac Vane and Richard Dickinson respectively.
Only 1½ points separates the top three teams – see final table here.
