Defending cup holders Loughton edged through to the quarter finals of the Finchley Cup in a nervy tie against an unexpectedly strong Wanstead 5th team.

The first round of games ended with Loughton slightly on top, 2˝-1˝

The second round was particularly exciting …..

This left the match tied at 3˝-3˝ with Dave’s game remaining. However a draw would mean Wanstead V going through on bottom board elimination tiebreak.
