Under 14s v Richmond JCC

The under 14 team played the first match in their SCCU u130 Final away at Richmond JCC at their usual venue, Orleans Park School.  It was fortunate for Richmond that after the January grades were published they had four players 130 and above who could still play due to lower August grades whilst we had just the one.  We were outgraded on most boards but many of our team had done well in various events lately and they were sure to give a good account of themselves.
