The highlight of the match, and possibly of the whole season, was Mike Doyle’s splendid win on board 7. Stop reading this and go to Game of the Week to play it through! Not bad, eh? Anyway, Mike’s win put us 1-0 up and then Bob P accepted a draw to make it 1½-½. At this point it looked as though we might even get a result as Nick on board 2 had enough advantage to turn down a repetition and we weren’t doing badly on boards 1 and 5 either. Unfortunately looks proved deceptive and all of the remaining five games ended up as wins for Bridge. Still, all of the Broadstairs players put up a good fight against higher-graded opponents and nobody has any reason to be disheartened. Congratulations to Bridge on their well-deserved win and thanks, too, to all the Broadstairs players for playing and especially to the two Bobs for driving.
