Our Intro Cup side played its first match of the season on Wednesday 12th October against Lewisham and won 2.5- 1.5.
Chris Cheeseman finished first with a solid (!!) draw. Masud Hoque playing his first competitive game for 8 months lost. Janis Elton, who had not played a competitive game for years, won by queening a pawn and then mating,and then Nigel Threadgold won his first competitive game ever. This was a really good game where Nigel kept control for a long time, building up the pressure until his opponent cracked in a very difficult position.
