'B' Team Start 2018 With A Win

A 2.5 - 1.5 win at Cheddleton 'E' last night saw the 'B' team move up to joint 2nd in the Division 3 table. This was our 3rd successive win and sees us move to within 2 points of the leaders, Crewe 'B'. However, it has to be said that we were extremely fortunate not to lose as Petru forgot to turn his phone off and it rang shortly after the start of the proceedings. Bill Armstrong, Petru's opponent on board 1, very sportingly declined to claim the game, which he then went on to lose. Chris Brian used up yet another one of his Get Out Of Jail Free Cards with a draw on board 4, in which he was a Knight down in the endgame. An early draw from me on board 2, followed by another draw for Mike on board 3, gave us the points. Click here for the match score card.
