When We Were Very Young

Last week’s TVKO match against Surbiton featured a top board encounter between two Richmond Junior Club alumni, who were born a few days apart nearly 50 years ago.

Here‘s their encounter from the 1983 Richmond U14 Championship.

Travelling even further back, last week’s Richmond B5 and Surbiton B6 met for the first and, so far, only time in 1975.

Of course you want to see the game, so here it is. I was losing from the opening but Nick’s 20th move (Rh1!) allowed me to turn the tables.
