Oxford U150 Team just miss clean sweep

The County U150 didn't quite manage to win against Hampshire on 
Saturday. As I was away for this match Ray Cordon kindly stepped in as 
captain. It looked to be a very close match with Hampshire winning 
11:9. Our bottom 5 boards were heavily outgraded, which swung the 
result their way. Nevertheless we still won the league overall with 10 
points. Thanks to all who played and to Ray for captaining. I hope 
everyone had an enjoyable afternoon's chess
