Raymond with four points is the winner of the 2014 March Series. Refusing to go down, even to the likes of Keith Wight and Alex Friedman, he has earned a well deserved round of applause. Keith even admitted after his game with Raymond he was lucky to get a half point.

Not to be forgotten with 3.5 each are Joe Ellis and Bobby Gillanders.
