Monday Evening Double

It was a good night for the club last night, with 2 wins from 2 matches.

A strong 'A' team beat Newcastle 'B' by 3.5 - 1.5. There was a fantastic result for Glyn, playing his first game on board 1, with a draw against Alex Richardson. Ray then scored his first league win of the season on board 2 and Rob also got his first win of the season on board 3, to ensure us at least a share of the points. It was then left to Kasian to seal the victory with a win on board 4. My game on board 5 is best forgotten. With an easy draw there for the taking I played a combination that I thought won me a pawn - it actually cost me a piece !! It was all downhill after that. Click here to view the match score card.

The 'D' team had an easy 3.5 - 0.5 win against Cheddleton 'I' to go second in the Division 5 table. There were wins for Derek, Ernie and John on boards 2, 3 and 4, plus a draw for Mike on board 1. We are now only a point behind Cheddleton 'G' but with 3 matches in hand. Click here to view the match score card.

The only outstanding match in the 2nd round of the Club Championship was also played last night, with Robert West beating Pete Tideswell. I expect the draw for the 3rd round to be made in the next couple of days.
