Circuit 2 of 4 – Results and Report (Glasgow)

TOURNAMENT REPORT

The second Scottish Circuit event, with GTSA as hosts, took place on Sunday 16th November at the Normandy Hotel in Renfrew. There were 16 participants, 10 from Tayside but only 6 from Glasgow. All players, however, enjoyed a fine day of competitive subbuteo. Groups of 4 were drawn with Steve Bennett, Gareth Christie, Tom Burns and Dave Gladman taking the seeded places. The winners of each group would play for the top four positions overall, the runners-up would play for positions 5-8 and so on.

Steve Bennett was tournament winner defeating Tom Burns in the final by the narrow margin of 2-1. At the last event Burns had reached the semi-final only to lose to Gareth Christie. In a repeat of that semi, it was Burns who got the upper hand this time, scoring a golden goal to secure his final place. It was also a good tournament for Barry Corr who defeated Greg Dand to reach the semi-final where he lost to Steve Bennett.

Greg Dand was the best of the runners-up defeating Rob Conway 3-0 for fifth place. Of the third placed players Dave Gladman came out on top by winning 3-1 against Dave Baxter. Fraser McKenzie secured 13th place by beating Martin Campbell on shots, scoring 4 of his 5 attempts.

Steve Bennett’s victory takes him to the top of the leaderboard but only 4 points ahead of Greg Dand. Indeed, only 7 points separate the top 4 players. Twenty players have taken part in the first two events. Event 3 will be in Glasgow in February.
