Intro v Lewisham

Sidcup 3 got off to a bad start for the defence of the Intro trophy they won last year with a resounding loss against Lewisham. It started badly when just before the match we had a player unavoidably pull out due to illness in the family, so we had to default on board 4. We could only manage a half point on board 3 by Ken Grist. Keith Thompson and Peter Houching had good games but were still beaten well, losing the match in the end 3 ½ to ½.
