With Gary Thurston agreeing a draw in his adjourned game Ilford has drawn it’s final match against Wanstead & Woodford.
With all matches in Divison 2 now complete Ilford’s final position at the end of the season is 6th with 6 from 11 match points which is a good return. The team has generally out-performed on grading and played tenaciously as evidenced by the four drawn matches achieved, including draws against the two top teams, Cavendish and Wanstead & Woodford. Ilford will be in Division 2 again next season and Tom Barton intends to continue as captain. See the London League web-site for full details: http://www.londonchess.org.uk/main.php
