We have played two friendly matches recently, one against Sedgemoor and one against Wellington.
When we visited Sedgemoor last, we suffered an ignominious defeat 5 1/2 to 1/2.
When they came to us on the 5th April we beat them 5-0. Perhaps it was our posh wooden match sets that unnerved them, or maybe we just played better.
Especially well done to Louis Wainwright representing Taunton for the first time. A solid victory over Sedgemoor’s Ryan.
The result at Wellington was not as good. We lost 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 ; that is 1 loss and 3 draws.
Perhaps in current times though, results are less important than the opportunity to play over the board chess against unknown opponents.
Anyway thanks to all who took part. Niall, Ioannis, Chris, Stan, Richard, Arnold, Phil, Frey and Louis.
