The Spring edition of the London International Teams moved from its usual Sunday to a Saturday to fit in with its new venue, the Melton Mowbray in Holborn.
This time a strong team of French players took part, but they lost out on the tie-break of Captain's results (match result would have been the same) to the North London Club. So North London was first (2 wins 5 games), France was second (2 wins 5 games) and Central London A was third (1 win 5 games). Wanstead took fourth place (1 win 2 games) with Alistair Wall bravely playing simultaneous games as they were a player short. Aja Huang 6d of North London and Nengli Lim 4d of France won all three games.
South London won the handicap group like last Spring. They won all three matches two games to one. Second was Central London B (2 wins 6 games), third was the Scratch team (1 win 4 games) and TfL was fourth (2 games). Francis Moore 5k of South London was the only player to win all three games.
