DHSS Win the Minor Section at the SCCU/London Club Championships

LPSCL Clubs pulled their weight at the SCCU/London Club Championships. The DHSS team of Brendan O'Gorman, Mark Ashley, Robert Fairhall and Brian Skinner took the Minor (Average 120) title. See link.

In the Intermediate Section (Average 150), Pimlico finished equal first on match points, but frustratingly missed out by a single game point. In the Major (Average 180) GLCC had to settle with the runners-up spot.
