Last year Rose Forgrove F beat us 4 – 1. This time, in the corresponding match, we beat them by 3 – 2 (and it could easily have been 4 – 1). That’s a sign of how much our team has improved in the last year.
Philip May, Andrew Pollard and Steve Hodgson, at boards 1, 2 and 5, all had solid victories.
It was our second win from the first 5 matches of the new season. A promising start to the season.
Team Captain Paul is on holiday in New Zealand. So Acting Captain Steve has written our for-members-only critique of the evening instead. It appears on Paul’s Page.
A little side-note: we thought we’d seen the last of Leeds A when they were promoted out of Division 3. But they are currently languishing at the foot of Division 2 so maybe they’ll be back down again next season. Of course we could get promoted in their place ………. just a thought.
