Crowthorne’s 4NCL team had mixed results in this weekend’s (24-25 March) matches in Division 4 South.
We started well on Saturday, beating Oxford 3 with a score of 4-2, but came a cropper on Sunday, managing to lose 3.3-2.5 to Iceni 2 – despite outgrading them by an average of 224 points (Elo, about 30 ECF). Well played by the Iceni team, who all seemed to find the right moves at the critical points.
I hope to post one or more games from the weekend in due course.
Despite this setback, Crowthorne are still well in the promotion battle, lying in 3rd= position and only two match points behind the leaders (Iceni 2!). The final weekend over the Bank Holiday weekend 5-7 May will be interesting!
