David Ward Memorial Cup

George Hazell is the first recipient of the David Ward Memorial Cup, which will be awarded each year to the most improved player (by virtue of increase in grade). George's grade increased from 99 to 117 this year. To put this into perspective, only 84 players in the country (out of 15,000) managed to increase their grade by more! Well done George.

Harrod Cup Nightmare

7.30pm and Littlethorpe 1 HC captain Graham wonders where his board 1 player is. A quick telephone call reveals that he is at the wrong venue, something for which the aforementioned player has 'previous'! A Stirling Moss type drive back from Spinney Hill earns him a draw in his second game, but the team still lose. You want to know who the missing board 1 player was? Was it

a) Lord Lucan
b) Mark Thatcher
c) Peter 'is this the right way?' Harrison

Thankfully all the 2nd team turned up at the right place and won a well contested match against Uppingham.
