'D' Team Beat Kidsgrove

The 'D' team have moved up to 3rd place in the Division 4 table, following a 2.5 - 1.5 win against second placed Kidsgrove last night.

We went into an early lead when Derek's opponent on board 1 blundered his Queen. We were then pegged back when Stuart lost on board 3. Ian was a pawn down on board 4, but he had a passed Queen's pawn which tied his opponent's King down and a draw was agreed. All eyes were then on Ernie, who went into an endgame with a Rook and 3 pawns against a Rook and pawn. With his King trapped on the back rank, and the  imminent  theat of check mate, his opponent duly resigned,

We are still 5 points behind top of the table Crewe 'G', albeit with a match in hand, but our final match of 2023 next week, against Gables 'B', gives us the opportunity to close the gap.

However, there was one bright spot from the evening from Fenton's point of view, as top of the table Crewe 'D' were beaten by bottom of the table Cheddleton 'B', so we remain in 2nd place.
