Report from William Orr

The U140 team played their first match of the season at the Lindum Group’s training building in North Hykeham, generously arranged by Herman Kok. I’d managed to expand my contact list and received several new volunteers, and consequently Gwylim Williams, Neil Bond, Richard Frankland and Jason Golding were making their first appearances for a Lincolnshire team. Our opponents were Nottinghamshire, who always arrive with a strong side, so it was something of a surprise when they had to default one board. With 16 digital clocks available, we were able to play the match with the new incremental time control. Paul Fischer soon added to the score with a quick win out of the opening. There were also wins for Grenville Wollerton, Neil Roberts and Terry Bennett, but unfortunately that was not enough and Nottinghamshire eventually won the match by a 3-point margin. The winning games are in the link below. Many thanks to Peter Sherlock for organising the clocks, and Jason Golding for stepping in at the last minute, only to find himself without an opponent.
