Wimbledon A v Richmond A 5-11-18

Firework night saw another visit to Wimbledon, this time to face the mighty Wimbledon A. There weren’t too many fireworks, but we came close to a result thanks, as usual, to Gavin and Mike on the top two boards.

In the adjourned game on board 6, Ian is a pawn down, with good drawing chances but, sadly for us, no winning chances.
