‘Twas not a good night for our teams.
Best result was from Team D. They only lost by 3 points to 2. Their 2 points came from a win by captain Steve Hodgson and draws from David Hanover and Paul Smith.
The other 3 teams only managed 2½ points between the lot of them. Admittedly they were playing slightly stronger opponents than Rose Forgrove F. For example, a Spanish Grand Master, a FIDE Master and another player with a grade of around 200.
Ian Carrigan was the only winner from our top 3 teams while draws came from Paul May, Paul Anderson and Sri Sriharan – the latter saving Team C from total obliteration.
Have a good Xmas!
