Tomorrow, Saturday, sees the Finals of the County Championships. Suffolk face Nottinghamshire in the Minor Counties Final.
Having (just) qualified from the EACU competition, Suffolk have gone on to conquer first Somerset, in the national Quarter-Finals, and then Essex in the Semi-Final.
It has been quite a struggle to find a team with an average grade not exceeding 180, but we have done so – our team for tomorrow averages 179.3. How close can we get?!
The match against Essex was a stunning victory for Suffolk, by 10½ points to 5½. There were victories for WGM/IM Dagne Ciuksyte on top board, Shaun Munson (Board 3), Steve Gregory (5), Tim Lunn (7), Rob Sanders (11), John Peters (12) and Silas Peck (13).
The result of tomorrow’s match will be published here tomorrow evening. Fingers crossed!
