The Tattenhall and Malpas sides played together for one last time before going their separate ways in a friendly match on Tuesday September 6 against Crewe.
Tattenhall and Malpas lost 4.5 to 3.5 with wins coming from Klaus, Peter and Charles Lowick Higgie.
The clubs would like to thank to Gemma Charlotte Moon for hosting the event at The Old School Tea Rooms, and to her daughter Aleisha Moon who played bottom board, and to Dee Harris and Graham Harris who came and took photographs.
