I feel that some of the comments I have read about the game between Letchworth and Chesham are quite valid and found myself in total agreement with my old friend Mark Bianchi.

I believe, though, the point is simply this.

Letchworth CC put out a side throughout the Chess Valley League campaign that consistently represented all five of its Saturday teams and were a top of the table team at the time of this game.

Chesham CC should have known this and sent a more competitive side than they did.

I therefore think that any criticism should be firmly aimed at Chesham CC and their selection and junior policies.

They are responsible for the result of this game, NOT Letchworth.
