BDCL Div Four Sto 4-2 Mer B

The Mercia nearly men! Alan Cox kindly stepped in with only half a days notice and fought well against a grade of 125 but to no avail. Peter H played out of his skin to defeat a 126. Dave Webb and Stuart arrived late having used the ring road as a race track completing 4 laps so started ten minutes behind, Stuart lost a close game having his 134 opponent in time trouble. Webby had a credible draw against a 136. Mike drew with a 138 leaving captain Dave needing a win against a 136 to secure a point, having refused a draw being the exchange up, he then went on to have a lapse in concentration after nearly 3 hours and lose the end game. As you can see we were well out graded but came close to securing our first point of the season.  Our luck can only change and hopefully will with our next match against Walsall Kipping at home on the 8th January.
I really appreciate the players that made themselves available, well done!
