Not the start to the season the 3rd team had hoped for, in more ways than one - our new Board 1 Edwin was mysteriously AWOL upon collection (was found to be stuck in London), so at very short notice an under-the-weather Jeremy stepped in. We arrived very late but Barnet graciously had not started the clocks (perhaps remembering our previous navigational nightmares to their venues!?). Unfortunately this was where the generosity ended - Jeremy had to face Tryfon Gavriel (180) on top board, an old Barnet face but now representing them again, and probably wished he'd stayed at home as he was ground down. Bill and Simon also lost, but debutant Francis Katumwa gained a creditable draw after being under pressure for the most of the game. I agreed a draw against Brian Bowie in an even position when the match was beyond us. Barnet on paper are the strongest side in the division (they were very hard to beat last year when we had an even stronger team), so we'll hope to get our revenge when they come to us.
