In their latest match Richmond D again faced higher graded opponents in the shape of Ealing B, this time going down to a narrow but honourable defeat.
|Richmond D||Ealing B|
|1||Alex Shard 142||½:½||Christopher Yapp 127|
|2||Dan Donohoe 109||½:½||Anthony Braine 125|
|3||Barry Sutton 109||0:1||Carlo Paglialunga 125|
|4||Richard Sleep –||1:0||Martin Loat 121|
|5||George Dokic 87||½:½||Trevor Bates 119|
|6||Ken Broadley 51||0:1||Geoff Richards 83|
Another win for Richard, who, I can’t help thinking, really should be playing on Board 2. Dan and George did really well to draw with stronger opposition, and there was also a solid draw for Alex.
