It was the traditional lovers’ night, St Valentine’s. It was also the last fixtures in the Year of the Cock.
Down at Rose Forgrove they were obviously giving priority to candle-lit dinners and an early night as they couldn’t put together a squad to face our Team C. So Team C got their first win of the season, by 5 – 0 from their scheduled opponents’ default.
Up in Division 2, the ‘A’ Team strengthened their position in the promotion race with a 3½ to 1½ win over Alwoodley C. There were wins for the 2 Pauls (Johnson and May) and for Tom Leah while Robert Moneagle recovered from a ‘lost’ position to gain a draw.
Next week’s games will be the first in the Year of the Dog.
