Five players travelled to Folkestone on a freezing Friday in February in search of a miracle … and it didn’t happen. Still, we tried. With better clock handling and/or a bit of luck we could have made three draws but the overall result was never in doubt once one of the five (no names!) lost two pieces for two pawns inside the first ten moves. On the positive side our hosts provided free tea and coffee. Congratulations to Folkestone on a well-deserved victory.
