Match report. This was a big game for us. At home to the league champions and leaders in Division 1 this season. We were outgraded on every board yet with great performances from Richard Major and Charles Metcalfe to win their games and James managing a draw in time trouble in a bishop v Knight and pawn ending we scored a very creditable draw. Well done team!
