Mixed Fortunes In Division 4

There were mixed fortunes for Fenton in our start to the Division 4 season. Fenton 'C' travelled to Meir 'B' and went down by 3.5 - 0.5, our only point coming from a draw by Steve on Board 1.  Stuart and Rob West both had winning chances but Rob left himself open to a back rank mate by his opponent's Rook whilst material up in an endgame. Stuart was the exchange up but lost on time. The 'B' team fared somewhat better with a comprehensive win over Holmes Chapel Tiny Pawns by 3-1, our only loss being by Mike Smith on Board 3.
