We opened our Richardson Cup campaign with an unlikely victory over Sheffield University yesterday. The match was tied at 3-3 and, having lost on both top and bottom boards, most of us presumed that we were out, but surprisingly we qualified for the next round 11-10 by virtue of our lower board count, having won on boards 2, 3, and 5.
The draw for Round 2 is already made, so we'll be facing what could be a terrifyingly strong SASCA 1 side at home, most likely on Wednesday 16th November. We've got the league to worry about before that though, with a visit to Woodseats on Monday 24 October before we welcome University A back to the Cranes on Wednesday 2nd November.
We'll be meeting on Wednesdays as usual on non-match nights. See you there!
