Actually what I meant to say before I got distracted above was well done to everyone involved in getting 16 games live. I have enjoyed it so far.

I would have been there to have led the Essex u-180 team but unfortunately work got in the way.

Two draws so far. Lots of action on the other boards. Exciting to watch.

A bit odd those Yorkshire players listed as ungraded. Cooper is the one I could just about believe, but it looks like he's played enough Yorkshire league games for Hull (he's been their board 1 for a while now) to have one. Colm Barry is Leeds so his local league is ECF rated. Jim Burnett just plays everything, has an X ecf grade etc :)

Webb has been having a quite amazing year actually. He wouldn't have quite been on this team last year, let alone board 6. Earned it and another win today.

5-1 to Yorkshire at the moment. This could be an even bigger winning margin than Germany-Brazil :shock:

Yes. Middlesex need a miracle from somewhere. Frankly a win from somewhere would be a good start. Hope the U160 team are doing better. (Now 6-1)

Think Middlesex need more than one miracle looking at the remaining games. Yikes.

Well I'm not complaining :)

Having just looked myself, I agree. Some excellent play by the Yorkshire players. (And a win for Middlesex on 14.)

And with the draw on board 16 it is official.

Congratulations to Yorkshire!

Absent random post match defaults at least ;)

About time after those twelves losses over about 150 years or so too! You know you're having a really bad day as a team when even games like the one on board 8 turn into a struggle to draw.

Yorkshire 12 - 4 Middlesex (prediction, with four games left) [Yorks +9 =6 -1]

A massacre

(edit: oops! I misread Alan Walton's position. So 11.5 - 4.5)

One game left. Currently 10.5-4.5 I think.
