A disappointing result for our C team against Ealing Juniors B.
Huw’s report will follow shortly, but I understand several games were lost through careless mistakes.
Ealing Juniors had a very strong top board, but the other players were all beatable.

My go-to man for chess instruction at this level is US coach Dan Heisman (Twitter): perhaps it’s no coincidence that we were born in the same year. He goes on and on, over and over again, that the most important word in chess is ‘safety’: making sure your move isn’t an oversight. Just the same as I do.
Congratulations to all our friends from Ealing Juniors. We look forward to seeing you again when we come out on the other side.
