Loughton crept through to the semi-finals of the Finchley cup.
Unfortunately we were missing some of our stronger players, so our opponents were a rather stronger side.
With that in mind, we did quite well to lose by only 5½ to 2½.
Our main man was Ken, who got a win and a draw against Brian Spear.
Should have been two wins, but I'll leave you to ask Ken about that. Martin got one lucky win and one complete drubbing.
Dave and Graham had a tough night, but their opponents were standard play graded 190 and 166, respectively, so please be gentle next time you see them.
