Forestside has a Subbuteo Champion!
Our own Ernest Bickerstaff, security supervisor soared to victory on Saturday in Gorey, County Wexford. This was Ernest’s first tournament win and he topped the 6 player league beating Nicky Moore into second place. The event is Old Style Subbuteo, played to Advanced Subbuteo rules with no polish allowed and it is not as easy as it looks.
You may not know but Forestside actually hosts a club night once a month in the Centre
Management suite and hosts its own Open in June.
1st June this year we welcomed the players and the tournament took place on the mall itself. There was lots of opportunity for the public to get involved and Emma Lamont won a penalty competition against other customers and some of the pros. Well done Emma. The Open was a great success and was eventually won by Kenny Beggs.
For anyone who fancies having a go, the Forestside guys are happy to welcome new members. They get together every month in Forestside and tournaments can take them anywhere in Ireland or the UK. Simply contact Ernest on 07540 110486.
