Our 3rd and 5th teams suffered defeats to RB 1 & 3 this week.
Our 3rd team was at home to RB 1. Gary’s loss to Mike Nailard was cancelled out by Peter GM’s win over Nick London. John H was unable to fend off Marcel Taylor’s attack and Keith had to settle for a draw against Ben Vaughan. Brian needed to win to draw the match, and he went two pawns up but then, in time trouble, he allowed Mick Sandham to play a back rank mate.
Our 5th team travelled to RB 3 on the same night. Ken beat Alistaire Davidson and Maggie drew with Charlotte Attwood, but defeats from Ronnie and Mick H to Stephen Morley and new player Gavin Dow saw them crash to defeat.
