A cracking match which ebbed and flowed. Well done to all of the players !

Yes a great match - went right down to wire finally ending when Benedict forced a repetition of moves. Everyone put in a great effort but congratulations to Uckfield

Dave's comment on that game epitomised for me what we as coaches hope to see and encourage from our youngsters. In a drawn position earlier, Benedict had already offered a draw to Henry, but with his team 2-1 down Henry declined as he felt he had to play for his team. Both players took it down to the final minute on the clocks and both made an error, but Henry's was possibly more critical and with more time on the clock, Benedict could have secured the win which would have been just reward for his play and a personal achievement against Henry. However Benedict knew that a time pressured mistake was possible and secured the draw by repetition to ensure Uckfield won the match. Brilliant !!
