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!
