Saxmundham travelled to Bury on Thursday evening to take on the County’s biggest club over six boards in the Norfolk and Suffolk Cup. Bury fielded a hugely strong team, with their top board rating getting on for International Master strength and even their Board 6 was rated on a par with our second board.

Not surprisingly Bury won by a country mile, but Sam gained a very creditable draw on Board 3 to avoid the whitewash. The Sax players certainly put up a good fight and it was not as one-sided a match as the score would suggest. Matthew and Dominic resisted late into the evening, and Dominic could probably have won if he had had a little more time, instead of blundering at the end and having to resign to bring the match to an end.
