Team A gain draw against Division 2 leaders

14 December 2017

Team A celebrated the approach of Xmas with a draw against the top team in Division 2.  There were draws from Paul Johnson, Paul May and Robert Moneagle and a win from Bob Maltby, giving a match score of 2½ : 2½ against  a strong squad from Rose Forgrove B.   At the midpoint of the season the team remains in 2nd place in the league table one point behind Rose Forgrove.

In Division 3 Limewood B lost 1½ :3½ to Rose Forgrove E who leapfrog them in the league table as a result.  The team’s score came from a win by Eric Brodie and a draw from Philip May.  Limewood C faced the Division 3 leaders, Pudsey B, in a seriously unequal contest (average grade difference of 47 on the top 4 boards).  Despite spirited performances the final score was 4 : 1 the wrong way.

We welcomed 2 newcomers to our teams:  Herbert Lockwood and Rodney Mitchison.  We look forward to them playing many more games for us.

Happy Xmas to everyone!  See you all in the New Year!
