Captains Comment

Last Monday we played host to Hammersmith B in the third division of the Thames Valley League and came away with a fine 4-2 win.

First out of the blocks was Chris Yapp on board 6 who overcame his opponent in short order before going home for an early night. Shortly afterwards Carlo Paglialunga on board 3 agreed a draw before young Yad Rahman on board 5 secured his second win in successive matches for the team. Amr Khalil on board 2 was unlucky when in a good position he misjudged his clock and lost on time with two moves to play. At the call of time John Harvey on board 4 had a superior position soon acknowledged by opponent when he resigned overnight. On board 1 Tony Braine had an even K+P endgame that was agreed drawn by his opponent the following day.
