I didn't play in Kidlington myself but I went to watch for a while during round 5. The top section looked very tough and I was quite relieved that I didn't enter.
I will probably be playing the winner of the U180 section, User 261214
, in a few weeks time when his team, Didcot, meet mine in the semi-final of the Oxfordshire league handicapped knock-out tournament. My team is in division 1, so we shall have to beat Didcot 4-2 to progress to the final, even though we will be heavily outgraded on all except the top board!
