Harrow v Richmond D 23-01-20

Richmond D were unfortunate to hit traffic problems due to a burst water main at Northwick Park roundabout, as a result of which their board 6 failed to arrive and several others arrived late.

Harrow Richmond D
1 James Lyons 136 1:0 Alex Shard 142
2 Mary Deans 129 ½:½ Dan Donohoe 109
3 David Wray 121 0:1 Barry Sutton 109
4 Alan Marshall 120 1:0 Richard Sleep –
5 David Stott 116 ½:½ George Dokic 87
6 Walk over 1:0 Default

Still, a respectable result against stronger opponents. Perhaps the result would have been different without the burst water main.

Congratulations to Barry for a fine win and to Dan and George for holding higher rated players to a draw.
