|* WANSTEAD A win on Board Count
Playing away against the redoubtable Writtle team, Wanstead A came away with a tie-break success in the closest of close encounters.
Identical average ratings of 2020, 5-5 after the two rounds, WW A accrued the critical advantage of winning Boards 1 and 2 in the second round, creating a three point gap in the Board Count totals to take the match.
We await Ashley’s report.
The other semi-final, between BARKING A and BASILDON takes place on 1 September.
