Bad news to report from last nights match Vs Cumnor 2 I’m afraid.
 
Firstly congratulations to Steve on the only victory of the night, and Simon, for a well-earned draw. I didn’t see much of any of the games, with my loss attributed to an under supported pawn and an unwise queen swap. Ray informed me a lack of time in the end game resulted in some ill-advised moves and eventual defeat.
