Grantham 2 v Ashfield 2    4.4.18

.The day coincided with news of the death of Ray Wilkins at the age of 61. Neil's offer on the trip there to render his Ken Dodd songs again  was declined and we  gave " The Ogres' Hummingbird " some air time. 
Grantham were by some way the strongest team we have played this season, Average Grade 161 to our 141. In our home fixture against them, which we won 3-2, their average grade was 127.Their strength told in the match.  They  outmuscled us on the top 2 boards. A draw narrowly eluded me. We actually edged Boards 3-5 and it's probably as well as we have played all season. Neil successfully sported his replacement lucky cap.

1 J Williams  182 - P Morgan  141     1-0
2 P Cusick    162 - R. Taylor   151     1-0
3 C Holt        159 - A Robinson 137   Draw
4 A Hebert     158 - N Graham  145   0-1
5 C Hill          145 - N Wright     133  Draw
Result 3-2  
  
A long home journey va Ollerton and Sutton Lawn, due to driver incompetence and roadworks, was lightened by dusty old gags from Neil's Bumper Book Of Jokes
