Consistency is a virtue – at least that’s what they told us at school. So we must be pretty good then. We played Alwoodley C for the second time this season and got exactly the same result both times. Paul drew at top board and the rest of us all lost. Score: us ½: them: 4½.
Admittedly we were playing uphill, so to speak. Their top 4 boards averaged a grade of 126 which is a long chalk higher than our boards 2 to 5.
Despite the odds, all our team put up a good fight. It was Ian Pratt’s first appearance for us. He came along as a bystander with hope of a getting casual friendly game – and found himself making his team debut. Welcome to the squad, Ian!
