This was a tight match going down to the wire the Woodbridges lost quickly and John Pickersgill was a piece down, so it wasn't looking good. But then Derek managed to win on Board 2. My game was looking drawish but was looking at John's epic game which he somehow turned around and won which made the score now at 2-2 with it all depending on my game. Being a cup match I quickly worked out that a draw on my board would win us the match on board count. So my opponent  who was in a bit of time trouble and me being only a pawn up accepted the draw willingly? Job done drawn match but a win on board count.

A predictable result, given that we were missing our two best players, and were outgraded by twenty to thirty points on every board, but all four games were hard fought, with Bill scoring an excellent victory on top board.

A fine result for us last night ! We won 4-3. The Blue Club outgraded us on the top boards but we had strength in depth. Bill lost on Board one. James drew on 2 John Addison lost on three but then we had Dave drawing on 4 and three wins on the bottom three boards by Steve Hutchinson, Steve Flaherty and Con Carey. So it means we now have played 4, won two lost two.

A good win for our A team even with having to default on the top board. This result puts us top of Div A.
