I am very pleased to report a fourth win (2.5-1.5) for the team against Sidcup 3 in the Tom Fuller League. A drawn match would not be sufficient to guarantee a semi-final place. On the night, progress was not straightforward. Andrew Dovey on the top board lost to the experienced and probably under-rated Dave Gilbert. MartinContinue reading “Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley 2.5-1.5 Sidcup 3”
