Jasper Tambini (Wimbledon) v Peter Lalić (Kingston)

Kingston 1 v Wimbledon 1, Surrey League division 1, Willoughby Arms, 17 October 2022

The match-up between Jasper Tambini and Peter Lalić, two highly creative young players, promised to produce fireworks and it did not disappoint. The game was short, sharp and violent, with Lalić enjoying a successful first outing in the Nimzowitsch Defence. His victory on board 2 was crucial in securing a narrow 4.5-3.5 win against a tenacious Wimbledon team. It was Kingston’s first match back in the first division of the Surrey League after winning promotion last season.
