This was what might become a vital relegation match between two teams who are strong at the top but lack depth.
After a predictably close encounter we ran out narrow winners. I was relieved to win my first game for many months. Well done to Gavin, who won in spite of starting half an hour behind on the clock due to teaching commitments, to Chris, for continuing his run of good form, and to Mike, Max and Adrian for their vital half points. Thanks to everyone for playing, and to Huw for setting everything up for us on Tuesday evening.
