It would have been difficult to predict Wood Green 1's line-up for their Round 3 match against North West Eagles. Whatever your viewpoint, the webmaster is grateful to Helen Milligan for a photographic record.

The Wood Green 1 team was:
  • Alexei Shirov (world ranked #10)
  • Pia Cramling (Sweden olympiad board 1)
  • Viktorija Cmilyte (Lithuania board 1)
  • Ekaterina Kovalevskaya (Russia board 3)
  • Ketevan Arakhamia-Grant (Georgia)
  • Elena Sedina (Italy board 1)
  • Harriet Hunt (England board 1)
  • Yelena Dembo (Greece board 1)
