Perhaps other club news might now strike a somewhat minor note, but nonetheless on our great game goes being played. Streatham Two for instance are 3-2 down in their match against Cavendish Thirds from the 4th, with a remarkable five games adjourned. Good luck to the team with those. Meanwhile on the subject of adjourned results, Streatham's Third Team London League match against West London 2 from two weeks ago today was left 4-2 on the night itself, with two left to play. The two left to play were both rook endgames - with fellow bloggers Morgan and Jonathan B commanding the pieces - and inevitably they ended in draws. So we win that one 5-3.
Finally, in the Croydon League's Division One, our first team beat Crystal Palace on the 24th by the score of 3-1. Now if that score sounds like a familiar result to you in this competition, you're not wrong. As Neill Cooper has emailed me to point out, the remarkable fact is that every match so far in the Division has been decided by that same score. What are the odds?
And that's it for now, until next time.
