MCC beat RAC and take the Cup!

The MCC beat the RAC at home 4.5 – 3.5 to complete a 100% record in the 2013/14 season and to take the Hamilton-Russell Cup.

In its time Lords has seen some nail-biters and this was no exception, as RAC took an early lead and seemed well placed on several boards.

It would have been a brave man who would have bet either way in the closing stages of the match and the last board, which proved decisive, could have gone either way with Nick Collacott taking the decisive point with only a few seconds to spare.

Here follows the match card and some photos
