“On the third day of Christmas, HammerChess gave to me…”
… London League 6 (Hedger), by Mike Mackenzie
With more than five seasons past piloting London League Division 6, I have seen many improvement in its organization, and none more so than this year.
With our growing membership we have once again entered two teams in London 6, and I have 12 nominated players available for selection!
Our first match was against our home-club rivals from League 6, Hammersmith MI, which ended in a draw with a win a piece and two boards sharing the spoils. Compare this to last seasons result, where the Hedger team scraped a 2.5-1.5 win – the standard in the League is clearly rising!
Our second match was also a draw against the Wanstead 2 side, with two wins a piece. This saw us make our debut in the plush surroundings of the London League’s new venue – the Citadines Hotel in Holborn.
Our third and final game so far saw us take a bruising defeat at Morley College, going down 1-3 – the less said about that, the better!
To date we have utilized 6 of our nominated players, with a further 6 waiting in the wings – strength in depth for the run-in next year!
An exciting second half to the season is ahead, with us kicking things off on Jan 16th against DHSS.
Merry Christmas to you all!
