Annual Match vs Olton 2013
(27/08/13)

Pavel Draws Blood
The annual match between Olton and South Birmingham took place on Tuesday 27 August 2013 at the Olton venue. This year the match took place over 25 boards and was the best attended for some years.
The first person to draw blood was Pavel! This was not the blood of his opponent, but his own. After cycling from Witton to Tyseley, he cut himself when parking his bike. This was quickly remedied with a plaster and play then proceeded. The spearhead of Olton’s attack (Phil Holt and Alan Lloyd) was nullified by Pavel and Pablo, who both held their opponents to a draw.
Members of all of our seven teams played in the match which was a good representation of our club. We out-graded our opponents on most of the boards and conceded only four losses. The final result was

South Birmingham 18 – Olton 7
