Riley Cup 2015 - Results

After a fine tournament, the last three round of which were played tonight at Aigburth People's Hall, Exiles of the Liverpool League beat Barbarians of the Wirral League in the final.

Barbarians reached the final by beating Kluggers 58-55 while playing short handed, one of their players travelling to the venue directly from Liverpool Airport after a flight from Spain and not quite making it on time!  In the semi final they beat Aigburth Swans 63-36, by this time having a full team.

Exiles progressed by beating Gladly Stoned 58-54, then beating Earles 61-25.

In the final, Exiles, the team consisting of John Curphey, Bryan Leach, Tony Coady and Clive Leach triumphed with a score of 57 to Barbarian's 48.  Barbarians' team consisted of Joe Davies, John Lively, Harry Merry and Len Davies.

Special mentions also go to Joe Raven of Earles, and Danny Grimes of Aigburth Swans who scored full houses in the quarter finals.
