We’re off and running with the first match of the new season.
We have an experimental team in the Centenary Trophy (Division 4 of the Surrey League) designed mainly to provide competitive chess for some of our newer members and get them on the grading list.
Huw Williams reports:
“We have played our first match tonight against strong opposition. Nearly all of us were out gunned by 30 or more points. However we only lost 4 -2. A good win by Colin and halves for Masoud and Huw. Well played Andreas and Paul on your first competitive matches and another thumbs up to Julian.”
|1||Robert Hamilton 175||½:½||Masoud Molazadeh 126|
|2||Marcus Gosling 164||1:0||Andreas Maroulis –|
|3||Graham Alcock 148||1:0||Paul Evans –|
|4||Michael Wickham 135||0:1||Colin Dailley 106|
|5||Ravi Sharma 134||½:½||Huw Williams 97|
|6||Brian Skinner 126||1:0||Julian Bedale 62|
I’d like to add my congratulations to Colin, Masoud and Huw on their outstanding results, and to Andreas and Paul on their first competitive games against strong opposition.
