The Stevenson Cup side recently went to Gravesend for their first match of the season and won by 4 - 2. Greg Edwards, David Gilbert and Lee Brockwell won and Tony Packham and Ian McAllan drew.

The En Passant Cup side went to Petts Wood and drew 3 - 3. Greg Edwards, Dave Helps and David Gilbert won.

In both matches a Sidcup player rejected a chance to give perpetual check in an otherwise losing position, and went on to win!

Ian McAllan
