Loughton were treated to a bizarre welcome from a gospel choir at Barking on Thursday night! Unfortunately, the Barking venue had also taken a booking for a birthday party on the evening of the match and there was loud music being played throughout. No fault of Barking chess club. They had booked the venue first and well in advance.
