Division 4 – Poole E 4 -0 Wimborne G – 23/3/17

A resounding win for the home team in a good night for our E Team. The match seemed much tighter than the score suggests but one by one the stayed strong and committed to make it a successful night.

David Burt had a strong game against Jim Newman albeit being out graded and scored our first win quite early on on Board 2

Igor playing on of our previous members Phil Holden had a poor opening and an inferior position but managed to pull it round and his opponent had no answer to a winning attack on Board 1

Christine Roberts playing her first game in her ‘come back to the club’ played solidly against Mike Davison and gained the advantage on A file, broke through to finish off in style in quite a long game. This made it 3-0

On Board 4 – Tim McCullagh playing a newcomer to the league Sam Walker had a strong game with all pieces challenging each other in a tense battle. Tim managed to break through check his opponent on the back file and finished him off. Again this was a long game and went the full distance.

Well done to all our players for doing so well which puts us in 2nd place being just one point behind the leaders with 3 games to go. Thanks to Wimborne G for making the evening enjoyable.
