The Jaguars (our 3rd team) and Ocelots (our 4th team) kicked off the season on Thursday evening, facing each other in Division 2.
New 4th team captain Andrew Medworth writes:
“Last night the Hendon 3rd and 4th teams got the Middlesex League season underway, with Hendon 3 winning the match 5-3.
The games went pretty much exactly according to grade, with the Hendon 4 wins provided by Julian and Edward on boards 2 and 3, but Hendon 3 scoring heavily on the lower boards.
Many thanks to everyone who played and helped clear up afterwards, and special thanks to Chris Rogal [the new 3rd team captain] for coming early to open up the venue and get everyone started!
Since this was a Hendon vs Hendon match, the exact division of players between teams wasn’t too important: I expect many people who played for Hendon 3 last night will play for Hendon 4 later in the season. The key was to establish the squad and get things off to a good start, and we certainly did that!
Hendon 4’s next match will be on Tuesday 16th October, at home against Albany 1. I will send out a call for players nearer the time.”
