  Bristol League Congress 2009 - Clifton College


The 1st League Congress took place inside the splendid setting of Clifton College over the weekend of 27th - 29th March. 

David Buckley 4/5 Won the Open Section after a critical 4th Round win against Chris Beaumont put him in the sole lead for the final round against Angelo Castruccio who had earlier dented James Sherwin's chances by delivering a 1st Round defeat and held both Chris Beaumont & Steve Dilleigh to draws in subsequent rounds.
