Poole A win away to Wimborne A in County League, Div 1
Poole A were the winners, in an opening County League Div 1 match for both teams, by the close score of 2.5-1.5. Div 1 newcomers Poole made a statement of intent in this division with the highest aggregate graded team so far: 695. Higher than the Wimborne team: 671, and also higher than the other County Div 1 match played earlier this week: Weymouth A: 676 and Dorchester A: 633. So the Poole team are very much welcomed, having won County Div 2 last season, as potentially serious contenders for the title.
