SCL Update 17/01/19

Basingstoke A strengthened their claim for the Division 2 title with a 4.5-0.5 win over Andover A. James Littleworth Andover’s lowest graded player by 35 points obtained Andover’s only half point in this match.

The Fareham B team that played against Chandlers Ford D in the Division 5 cup had an average age if you include the game counting for grading purposes only had an average age of 83, with four players over 80. However the relatively young Chandlers Ford D team emerged 3-1 winners in the match itself with Michael Lesniak making a promising debut.

Elsewhere Chandlers Ford A missing top board David Holmes were narrowly beaten by Salisbury B, while Winchester A beat Southampton C 4-1 with all of their bottom three boards winning their games.
