Congratulations to Glastonbury on winning the Somerset League, Division 3 Central.
Here's a report by Glastonbury player Roger Fenton on their final match against Yeovil:
Last season Stuart Marsh took over the captaincy of Glastonbury’s Division 3 Central team and just failed to end his debut year with the league title.
Last week came the opportunity to finally achieve this goal. Only a single point was needed from the final match against Yeovil to secure the trophy the Thorns had last won in 2004.
Things began well when Paul Moody returned to winning form, easily outplaying his top-board opponent. This early lead was doubled when Martin Willis found a brilliant checkmate to put an end to the threats from county player Simon Grey.
But, fittingly, it was Stuart himself who secured the draw that saw the contest won by Glastonbury and a clear margin of victory in the final league table.
A final success for Roger Fenton ensured a crushing match scoreline in favour of the Thorns and their 2009-10 unbeaten record maintained.
