Despite Graham Booley getting creditable half against Jim Miller, the rest of the side couldn't pull off an upset against higher ranked opposition, so despite the 2.5 points start (due to a grading difference of 151), the side lost 3.5-2.5. On the other three boards, Dave and Ray both lost inside thirty moves, whilst Colin lost to a sucker punch having gone material up.
Jim Miller - Graham Booley 0.5-0.5
John Glover - Dave Ricketts 1-0
John Dawkins - Ray Beach 1-0
Greg Adcock - Colin Ross 1-0
So we will have to win the Birstall Cup instead.
