'B' Team Closing In On Championship

The 'B' team came through a very tough match against Stafford 'B' last night before running out as 2.5 - 1.5 winners. Boards 2, 3 and 4 all resulted in draws for Rob, Steve and Geoff, but Derrick pulled the rabbit out of the hat with a fine win on Board 1 to give us the points. We are now level at the top with Cheddleton 'D' but with a match in hand so it's all in our own hands now. We have 3 matches left, beginning with another tough one away to Newcastle 'C' next Wednesday. We need 2 wins and a draw from our last 3 matches to guarantee us the title, assuming that Cheddleton win their final 2 matches.
