Uxbridge v Richmond B 03-12-19

A visit to Uxbridge, the north western outpost of the Thames Valley League saw an exciting match resulting in the points being shared. This was a potential relegation match, and, while our opponents were almost at full strength, we fielded a weakened team.

Here’s what happened.

Uxbridge Richmond B
1 Peter Walters 166 1:0 Seb Galer 176
2 Colin Hughes 153 1:0 Sampson Low 155
3 Michael Price 145 ½:½ Adrian Waldock 146
4 Peter Lord 145 0:1 Maks Gajowniczek 139
5 David Knight 140 0:1 Paul Evans –
6 Daniel Knight 138 0:1 Lewis Low 94
7 John Woolley 126 1:0 Rob Hunter –
3½:3½

What fantastic results from Paul and Lewis in defeating the Two (much higher graded) Knights! A great win also for Maks against a creative and dangerous opponent, and a customary solid draw from Adrian.

It was good to see Seb in action for us again. I hope he’ll be able to make some A team matches: we really need players of his strength.
