Captain’s report:

 

The Under 180 team took on Lancashire on Sunday 15th December 2019 in the annual NCCU match versus Lancashire at the Latvian Club in Bradford.

 

I'd like to thank everyone who played the day after a Yorkshire league match, David Mills and Peter Cloudsdale for help on the day, and also Bradford for allowing us to use their equipment.

 

We quickly gained an advantage on most of the middle boards, meaning I was confident we'd win even after about ninety minutes.

 

The most exciting games were attacking efforts by David Wedge and Pete Micklethwaite.  Unfortunately David ran out of pieces to fuel his attack and the counter attack broke through.  Pete allowed his entire queenside to drop off, before launching a mating attack.

 

We are now through to the National Stages, and await the draw in April 2020 to determine our next opponents.

 

Daniel Sullivan
