Shark trophy up for grabs in Ashford

It was a case 'Girl Power' reigning supreme at the Wicklow Backgammon Championship as Liz Perry left the Ashford House proudly clutching the Shark Trophy.

Liz may have been the only female entry out of 20 different players but the Dubliner didn't let that put her off her play.

Five of the top ten players in the country made it to Ashford on Saturday for the start of the day long championships while backgammon experts also flew in specially from England.

Proceedings got underway at 12 noon and continued on until 8.30 p.m. when Liz was finally declared the overall winner.

The Wicklow Championship was the curtain raiser for the season and now all thoughts will be on the forthcoming Irish Open which will take place in Dublin later this year.
