Salisbury defeat Basingstoke in the Cup

Southern Daily Echo

In the Robertson Cup Basingstoke travelled to Salisbury. Although Basingstoke A were last season in the same division as Salisbury B and Basingstoke A and Salisbury C in the same division as Basingstoke B it is believed that it is the first time that the teams have met at first team level.

It was Salisbury A who emerged victorious winning 3.5-1.5 despite Basingstoke stalwart David Graham achieving a splendid draw on board 1 and Graham Phillips winning on board 5.

The result means that Salisbury are away to the winners of the match between Ringwood and University B in the next round of the cup and Basingstoke away to the losers in the Plate.

Result: Robertson Cup

Salisbury 3.5 Basingstoke 1.5
(S Piper 0.5 D Graham 0.5, A Cooper 1 J Shaddick 0, D Renham 1 P Ware 0, A Manning 1 P Beldaus 0, T Rusin 0 G Phillips 1)
