Fenton Out Of Gothard Cup On Board Count

We were knocked out of the Gothard County Cup last night by Cheddleton, our perennial bogey team. A 2 - 2 draw meant that Cheddleton go through to the Final on board count. It was a closely contested match with only 3 grading points separating the two teams. Early draws for myself and Max on boards 3 and 4 left us needing something out of Glyn's game on board 1. Unfortunately for him (and us !!) it was not to be and we were left 2 - 1 down with only Kasian on board 2 to finish, in a game that now had no relevance to the final result. However, he found an excellent combination to win the game and level the match at 2 - 2. Unfortunately the board count rule meant that we lost the match. Click here to view the match score card.
