Harrow B v Richmond C 07-02-19

Richmond C travelled to Harrow and, although without their regular top board, being outgraded on every board and being a player short (I guess the clash with a D team match didn’t help) came away with a highly creditable 3-3 draw.

It was great to welcome back Richard Sleep after a 20 year absence. Richard has been involved with the club, on and off, for many years. I’d met him at a string quartet recital last summer where he told me he was interested in starting to play again. Congratulations to him on returning with a win, and also to Barry, with another great win against a higher graded opponent. Well done also Dan and George for sharing the point in their games.
