Our two matches last night resulted in a narrow defeat for our TVB team against Surbiton B and a good win for our Ellery Williams Trophy team against Ashtead.
Here’s the TVB result:
- Bertie Barlow (1899) 0:1 Liam Bayly (1974)
- Raghu Kamath (1833) 1:0 Paul Dupré (1993)
- Jon Eckert (1854) ½:½ Nick Faulks (1958)
- Sampson Low (1828) ½:½ Graham Alcock (1767)
- Victor Bluett (1710) ½:½ Andrew Boughen (1828)
- Simon Illsley (1786) 0:1 David Cole (1742)
We were slightly outgraded so the result was very much what was expected. Congratulations to Raghu and thanks to all for playing.
Our win in the Ellery Williams Trophy kept us in second place:
- Andrii Boiechko (-) 1:0 Christopher Perks (1671)
- Steve Payne (1569s) 1:0 Robert Jurjevic (1649)
- Peter Kasprovicz (-) 0:1 Nick Thynne (1475s)
- Ron Bilkhu (1404s) 1:0 Peter Grabaskey (964)
Well done to Andrii, Steve (against a higher rated opponent) and Ron for winning their games, and again thanks to all for playing.
