U140s beat Middlesex 9.5 - 5.5 in first match

The U140 season got off to a fine (if belated start) with a win over 13 Middlesex players by 4 clear boards. Despite Middlesex turning up ultimately with 13 players (vs our 15) we still won the actual match by 5 wins to 3, and hence ran out comfortable winners by 9.5- 5.5. Top 4 boards scored heavily, with 3 wins by Paul Laskier (on his board 1 debut) Michael Flatt and Andrew Maclaren, backed up by a brace lower down the team from Gary Ruddicks and Stephen Dicks. Our next game is against Essex on 3rd December back at the Gadebridge.
