Fenton Narrowly Fail To Lift Gothard Cup

We narrowly failed to lift the Gothard Cup last night, losing to Cheddleton on board count after a 2.5 - 2.5 draw. There were draws on boards 3, 4 and 5 for Danny, Rob and myself before Ray put us in the lead with a win on board 2. We then only needed a draw on board 1 to lift the trophy, but Glyn mistakenly thought he needed a win and overplayed a totally drawn position and lost the game. A disappointing end as this was our last chance of winning any silverware this season for the first time since 2005/2006. Click here to view the match score card.
