Fenton Lose Battle Of The 'C' Teams

The 'C' team were beaten 2.5 - 1.5 at home by Cheddleton 'C' on Monday evening. 

We got off to a bad start when Matt suffered a very early loss on board 3, followed by Mycle on board 1, to put us 2-0 down. Gennady continued his recent run of good form with a win on board 4, his 3rd win in successive matches, to drag us back into the match. Unfortunately, Phil was unable to get the win on board 2, which would have drawn the match. However, a draw against an experienced opponent, rated nearly 200 points higher, was a very good result for him and reflected his good form of late.

If we had been able to win the match it would have been mathematically possible, athough unlikely, to have avoided the dreaded Wooden Spoon. However, with only one match remaining we are, unfortunately, going to find ourselves propping up the table.
