A1 v WB 1  13/9/17

S Burke           1 – 0        R Richmond
G Halfpenny   1 –0         C Budd
D Levens        1 – 0        R Murphy
J Herrington   1 – 0        M Hunter
P Morgan    1/2 – 1/2    R Abrahart

Our visitors brought a seriously depleted team. The stand-out win was Steve's against Robert, so often the Scourge of Ashfield. Steve somehow managed to turn the tables when Robert had a very strong initiative. Glenn had a commanding win. The match had a few notable firsts. Bob Abrahart scored a well-deserved draw on his first appearance in  Division 1 of the Notts. League. David Levens made a winning debut for our club despite Ross Murphy's spirited resistance. It was also our club's first match played under the new alternative time-limit  of 1 hour and 15 minutes + an increment of 10 seconds per move.
The final score probably flattered us.      A1 v WB1    4.5 - 0.5
