County U-140's Sign Off With A Win

Following their trials and tribulations of the last month, Ray Dolan stepped in to organise the County U140 team for their final match of the season against Warwickshire. A weaker than usual Staffs team included several players from the Bulldogs and Terriers U120 teams, plus a couple of ungraded players. However, the team rose to the occasion and, despite being outgraded by Warwickshire on every single board, pulled off a magnificent 8 1/2 - 7 1/2 win. Well done to Ray for his efforts, including also stepping in to play, and win, on Board 1 when one of the Staffs players failed to arrive.
