Nomads’ first match in the Summer League was played in blistering heat. Fortunately Darnall & Handsworth provided an excellent selection of fine ales. Steve was first to finish with an early pawn promotion, and soothed his parched throat with a Blond Witch and an Old Speckled Hen. Nomads were to win on all boards in some quite tough games.
