Captain's verdict - "I didn’t see much of the other games, but I think we gave them a closer fight than it looks on the scoreboard. I came very close to getting a draw myself, still being equal after 48 moves, but was the first to blink as time ran down!"
We were fielding 3 reserves, and West Notts had too much fire-power for us, despite creditable  draws from our middle order. John was mightily impressed by his opponent, Anita , who is improving rapidly and appeared here fresh from attending a Wesley So master-class at the London Chess Classic.
