Last week in the U16s there was further success for Rathmines players. After 4 players tied on 4/5, there was a playoff between Armstrong player Muhtarim Ul Haque and Heidenfeld player Sanjay Menon which Muhtarim won to complete the U16/U19 double. Armstrong player Mustakim Ul Haque was just a half point behind on 3.5.
Well done to all.
