Stephen Pitts – Player of the Month for December 2019

Congratulations to Stephen Pitts Player of the Month December 2019

Stephen Pitts is the IOMSRA Player of the Month for December 2019 with a point’s increase of 13.7%. Not many matches are played in December which explains the small increase but Stephen enjoyed two good results against higher ranked players.

Emma Leith was second as she went past the 750 points mark to achieve her highest ranking ever at 766 points. Emma represented the IOM at the Island Games in Gibraltar and the experience she gained there seems to be really pushing her to better and better performances.

The third placed player is Andy McLarney, he has increased his playing level by significant margins in his last four matches. He is a great addition to the Outcasts Dragons squad and has really helped them perform well and achieve some good results this season.

The five most improved players in December 2019 are –
1 Stephen Pitts – points moved from 408 to 464 = 13.7%
2 Emma Leith – points moved from 676 to 766 = 13.3%
3 Andy McLarney – points moved from 301 to 331 = 10%
4 Barry Irvine – points moved from 871 to 956 = 9.8%
