Hopes were high for the afternoon match, where Suffolk outgraded Norfolk by an average of five grading points per board. But again, things went badly for Suffolk, and with just one game remaining (mine!) the scores were tied at 7½ - 7½. Despite being a hard-earned pawn ahead, it proved too difficult to keep my king protected and I eventually succumbed to hand Norfolk the win by 8½ - 7½.
Congratulations are due to Phil Hutchings, the only Suffolk player to win both games. On 1½ points were Andrew Shephard and Vivian Woodward. Many thanks to Anita Somton for turning up for the afternoon match - and winning!
