That was a strong Surrey Open team vs Yorkshire!

Have Cleveland ever won anything before? Huge result for them to win 10-6 giving away 100 pts/board.

Looks like Cleveland won the U140 and U125 in 1997 as well as the U100 in 2001.

Being able to sustain playing strength to over 2100 all the way down to board 16 is what won Surrey the match (they won the bottom four boards).

Yeah harsh on Sussex if we went Cov/Brum neutral venue for all 3 of the distant ones ..presume Cambridge venue for Lincs vs Sussex as about 105 miles each
I gather it's Warwick University except for the local clashes
