Surbiton B have made their intentions of winning Division 2 and returning to the top flight clear, so it wasn’t surprising that they fielded a very strong team for this match. Their boards 1, 3 and 4 were on boards 3, 4 and 5 for their A team the following evening.
It was good to see Chris Baker making a rare appearance for us, and even better to see him scoring a fine win against a formidable adversary. Congratulations to him, and also to Ian, Richard and Maks, who all held their opponents to a draw.
