Under 14s Draw 12-12 with Kent
On 8 December fourteen players represented Essex at Amherst School, Sevenoaks for the fixture against Kent. After the first round we led 7-5 although many of the games had been had fought. Unfortunately, the second round started badly, especially on the lower boards, and although we recovered as the round progressed, the extra half point needed to win the match was just beyond us. Still a draw is always a good result against Kent and the teams were evenly matched. Well done to all the players, including the two reserves who won all their games and not forgetting parents for all their support.
As usual, the full result is on the SCCU website
We have Middlesex and Surrey to play at the beginning of 2014 and I am trying to arrange these matches at present.
