Noeleen Thomson Cup Final

There will be new name on the trophy this season as Alan Dee caused a mini shock in defeating former winner Donal O’Boyle in the semi-final last night.   Admittedly, he won on time but it was close all through the match.   After match analysis seemed to indicate that Alan had a better position and could force a win, but he was playing DOB!  Anyway, Alan plays white against Sean Cummins next Tuesday.  It should be a terrific match?
