After the national fixtures of the previous week, attention returned to the Birmingham league and another tough fixture against arguable the toughest opposition in the league King Edwards Edgbaston.
This fixture involved the first team and the first outing for the year sevens.
The year sevens eventually lost 8 games to 4, well done to Sujjan, Piotr, Shivansh and Kieran for managing to win a game against very tough opposition.
After a tough games on boards 4,5 and 6 the first team found themselves 3-0 down!
Impressive performances on boards higher boards managed to turn things around, but unfortunately qmgs couldn't quite manage a draw. Eventually losing 3.5 to 2.5. Well done to Fahim, Sarvesh and Dhiren Bahia.
Especially well done to Dhiren Bahia who is quickly becoming an established first team player in year 9! I'm sure this rapid ascension is at least in part due to his extra curricular commitments at Bloxwich chess club. Who are always looking bright young players. http://www.sjca.org.uk/bloxwichjunior.html
