Richmond B faced another tough Division 2 match, at home to our local rivals from Hounslow. There was an excellent win from Ian against a very experienced campaigner and two excellent draws, from Adrian, and, especially from young Lewis, against a much higher graded opponent. Hounslow have a winning 4-2 lead, with one game adjourned.

I should receive a report from Adrian sometime soon, but he has an even harder match, away to Kingston on Monday, to deal with.
Division 2 is pretty challenging for our B team at the moment, but at the same time Division 3 would be a bit too easy.
