26.11.18: Thames Valley Division 1 – Wimbledon v Hammersmith

A fabulous result from last night – too good not to share immediately!

In the top tier of the Thames Valley setup, the mighty Hammer took on stalwarts and long-time “team to beat”, Wimbledon A in a highly-charged match down in SW19.

Putting down a marker as serious title contenders, Hammersmith came away with a draw against a side featuring a titled player, with an average +7 grading difference over the full 8 boards. A truly superb result, and rounding off an unbeaten run of 5 games in the Division so far, which sees us joint-top of the table on 4.5 points, with a game in hand on Wimbledon A.

A proud result, and huge kudos to the effort and commitment shown by the team last night. The league table makes for immense reading. We can only dream!

 Forza!!

And the well-deserved, refreshment-based, post-match analysis:

    1. Yes, but where was the Irishman and the two Frenchmen?

      Is that what you call an international playboy squad?

      Reminds me of the time Liverpool win the FA Cup without an Englishmannin the starting 11.
