JEF PAGE                         0-1    STEVE RIX 171
LAVANAN AINKARAN  0-1    PHIL STANILAND 160

Edited from Jef’s notes. A strong Wanstead 1st team outgradied us on every board, but games were played out to a tough finish.

Syd Kalinsky easily held Hunnable’s French Defence but Neville on top board had to work hard to draw with Spearman. Jef misplayed the opening in a cramped position and in spite of seeking counter-play, could not old off Steve Rix, whilst Wanstead captain Staniland proved too strong for Lavanan. Similarly Anthony Kent could not prevent Marden gaining control of the centre and opening up his defence. Our only winner was Tom, who is having a good season, breaking out of the middle game to win the ending.
