It was then the Grappenhall league’s turn to hit back with some superb wins of their own taking out strong Altrincham and Sale players like Darren Buckley, Steve De, Dennis and Dave Wood to make it 9-7 to Altrincham and Sale.

Youngster Chris White, of Central Club, then beat Geoff Talbot in a tense game that took Altrincham and Sale to within one game of the match.
