Fenton Unable To Save The U140's

The Fenton contingent of Rob, Derrick and Steve were unable to prevent the County U140 team being mauled 12 - 4 by Nottinghamshire yesterday. The only bright spot was that Rob was one of only 2 players in the team to win their game. Steve and Derrick both lost. Derrick was obviously influenced by Rob's recent loss at Holmes Chapel because he left his Queen en prise. Steve had a lost position after 18 moves but managed to fight back and cling on until move 74 before conceding. A miserable afternoon was compounded by the drive home in the snow. A two hour delay on the A50 meant that we got home at 10:00 that night - a 5 hour journey !!
