Suffolk First Team continue their winning ways

Current Champions Suffolk continued today where they left off last season, winning both matches in this season's EACU County Championships.   In the morning, Suffolk (average grade 182.6) thrashed an under-strength Bedfordshire (average grade 162.2) by 12½ points to 3½.   Beds were missing several of their top players.

In the afternoon, a much closer match against Norfolk (average 178.6) resulted in a win by the narrowest of margins, 8½ - 7½.   Suffolk captain Ian Wallis reports that at one time it looked as if Suffolk might even lose.

Four players won both their games: Alan Merry (Board 1), Mike Cook (8), Leon Burnett (12) and Steve Ruthen (14).   A further five players scored 1½ points: Mark Le-Vine (7), Nick Savage (9), Silas Peck (10), Tim Lunn (11) and Martin Fogg (13).   Three players were unbeaten (two draws): Ed Player, Ian Wallis and Rob Sanders.

All in all, an excellent day's work.   The next matches, against Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire (again), will take place on 29 November.
