This was the 7th Juniors vs. Seniors match and saw a bumper turnout of juniors – 21 in all and the biggest match to date.
Thank you to everyone who turned out and a big welcome to the newcomers: Alex Adascalitei, Jamie Pritchard, Billy Hopkins, Alex Littlehales, Dominic and James Walker, Stevie Clark, Joseph and Thomas Leake.
Special thanks go to Stefan Adascalitei and Tony Hedger whose hopes of a quiet evening were dashed when they were needed to step in to ensure the adults had a full team.
The adults have been suffering in this annual series but this year was always going to be different – long standing juniors Matt Payne and Will Graham are now seniors and the adults averaged a rating advantage of 40 points on each board. Despite this, the juniors gave a great account of themselves and limited the damage to 14-7.
Hope to see as many of you as possible at the Bernard Bruno tourney next week to close the season.
