ON a beautifully sunny but cold morning in Birkenhead Park Tixall's Anthony O'Neill had yet another win in this series of Flyers Tournaments to further increase his lead at the top of the points table.

In the final he beat Hoylake Central's Tommy Walker.

O'Neill beat Cammell Laird's Frank Leach in the quarter finals before having a surprisingly comfortable win over Hawksbury's Paul Roberts in his semi final match.

Walker had two real tussles to get through to to the final winning both his matches with a 21-19 score; in the quarters he beat St. George's John Joy and then young Owen Turner of New Brighton Quarry Vikings in the semi final.

Despite his best efforts in the final Walker could not prevent O'Neill from going on to take his third win of this series.
