'B' Team Still Propping Up Division 2

The 'B' team are still struggling to win a match in Division 2. Things were against us from the start when Glyn had to withdraw on the morning of the match due to a family illness. His replacement, Petru, then failed to appear for his lift to the match, so Chris Brian was drafted in at the last minute to make up the team. Cheddleton 'B', who have also been unable to win a match this season, sent a strong team, outrating us by 761 points. Against this backdrop we did very well to get a 2-2 draw. Chris was an early loser on board 4 and Dylan went a piece down on board 3 early on before succumbing to the inevitable. However, there were good wins on the top 2 boards by Steve and Jay to give us a share of the points. Click here for the match score card.
