Walberswick & Ipswich - 2009 Grand Final

Having witnessed the third/fourth place play-off go to a deciding game, both The Bell Inn Walberswick & Ipswich PC '09 lined up to face each other in this years climax to the 2009 season.

Both sides had had the best two divisional records in their groups and had won each group respectively, thus earning the coveted Grand Final play-off spots. With around 50 to 60 interested spectators, the match got under way and again some tight tactical play saw the match stand at 1-1 by the half-time point. Ipswich then edged ahead in the 3rd pair, only to see Walberswick peg them back in the fourth game.

2-2 now and another decider required.

Ipswich, having 5 players, put together the two players who had only played the once so far in this match, whilst The Bell put on the pair who had taken the match to 2-2. Unfortunately for The Bell, they never got going in the game and dropped to a 13-0 loss, handing Ipswich PC '09 the 2009 Suffolk Coastal title.

A fine match between two very good sides, who had shown the reasons why they had got to the Grand Final in the first place, by good use of teamwork and tactics.
