Lincolnshire v Staffordshire

Report from William Orr

The U1850 team match against Staffordshire at East Goscote was closely contested, with 8 of the games resulting in draws. Lincolnshire took an early advantage with wins from Peter Sherlock and Ian McDonald, but Staffordshire soon recorded several wins to take a 1 point lead with only one board still in play. A win was essential and was duly delivered by Herman Kok to leave the scores tied at 8-8, but with Lincolnshire claiming a win on board count.
