Just two matches to report this week: one victory and one defeat.
We’ll start with the bad news.
Our Fred Manning Trophy team (for players rated under 1600) went down to a talented young Epsom A team comprising two pairs of siblings. All the games were hard fought, but our opponents were just a bit too strong.
- Steve Payne (1569) 0:1 Lucy Buckley (-)
- Andreas Maroulis (1488) 0:1 Arnav Kumar (1445)
- Peter Kasprowicz (-) 1:0 Emma Buckley (1443)
- Ron Bilkhu (1404) 0:1 Sachin Kumar (1368)
Congratulations to Peter for his tenacious win.
Our London League team’s penultimate match was against Streatham. We managed to field a more representative team than in some of our recent matches, and were rewarded with a big victory.
