Under 14s Continue Good Form in Surrey

The under 14 team played their third fixture of 2017/18 away against Surrey at Wilson’s School, Wallington on 24 February 2018.  The Team Manager was pleased to be able to bring a strong team, including reserves, and we soon built up a healthy lead in the first round although there were several hard fought games.  The top three boards were the last to finish but were all eventually won by Essex despite this looking unlikely until the closing stages of the games.  This left us with a 10½ to 1½ lead at the interval between the games.
