At Last - A Win For The 'A' Team

The 'A' team finally ended their losing streak last night with an excellent 3 - 2 win at Cheddleton 'B'. For the first time this season we fielded almost our strongest available team and it makes you wonder where we might have been in the league had we been able to do this all season - certainly nearer the top than the bottom. A debut win for Petru Floresc on board 2 plus wins for myself and Mike on boards 4 and 5 sent us into a 3 - 0 lead. Losses for Ray and Rob on boards 1 and 3 did nothing to take the shine off the evening. Despite winning we are still bottom, but at least it's joint bottom now and we are only just adrift of the other teams immediately above us. This result gives us some hope for the rest of the season and something to build on.
