Fenton Winning Streak Comes To An End

The 'A' team's winning streak came to an end last night when they were held to a 2.5 - 2.5 draw by bottom club Alsager 'A'. In a match that we had high hopes of winning we were disappointingly beaten on the top two boards. However a 16 move grandmaster draw for me on board 3, plus wins for Mike and Geoff on boards 4 and 5, gave us a share of the points. We are still sitting in 5th position, just 2 points behind Cheddleton 'B' and Holmes Chapel Knights, who are in joint 3rd position. With 2 matches left to play we still have an outside chance of improving on this before the end of the season. Click here to view the full score card from last night's match.
