The club championship at Broadstairs for the Goodall Cup is well under way and our first contender for Game of the Week features two newish members, Trefor Owens and Richard Clement, who both joined the club last year. Perhaps describing this as Game of the Week is slightly misleading as Trefor didn’t know how he lost and Richard didn’t know how he won. You may wonder, therefore, why it was selected. Well, a player beating an opponent almost forty points stronger is always worth sharing with a wider audience in my opinion. Fortunately, both players have added their comments so you can make up your own mind. A curious postscript to this game is that it was the first in the Goodall Cup for either player. Both will remember it for different reasons.
White: Richard Clement (128) Black: Trefor Owens (167)
