Limewood A’s easy win against Rose Forgrove F strengthens their place in second spot in the League Div 3, five points clear of the next team, Pudsey B. (Two weeks ago the League table showed the gap as a single point but Pudsey B have somehow contrived to lose 2 points off their old total as well as losing their match this week.) Limewood beat a not-very-strong Forgrove F by 4½ to ½.
As the top 2 teams at the end of the season will be promoted, Limewood A are clearly in a strong position.
‘Twas a different tale with Limewood B though. We lost by 4 points to 1 to Rose Forgrove E. The solitary point came from draws achieved by Howard Brears (against Gerhard Quinn) and Steve Hodgson (against Bill Catron).
David Halpin was putting in his first appearance for the club. Welcome to Limewood, David!
We also welcomed two promising young players, Daniel Moore and Alex Thomas, who were able to have some friendly games. We hope they liked what they saw of the club and that it won’t be long before they can get some League experience.
