Into the Xmas period and 3 matches this week

After a successful week for the club last week when we managed 1 defeat in an inter club Bacchus league match, 1 draw for the D  team and wins for our Rooks, the E team and our Dorset League B team we go into the Xmas period.

Please look at ECF/LMS/Dorset/Poole for detailed results, match reports and league tables.

This week we have our annual derby match in the 1st Division between our A and B teams. This usually ensures much banter, pre match friendly jibes and fierce competition over the boards. Usually analysis takes place with a pint in the bar afterwards. Both teams could do with the points so no quarter will be given.

On Thursday Christine’s E team will hope to continue with another win and our Bishops (Junior) team will hope to return to winning ways against Highcliffe in the Bacchus league. Jamie is returning to the team for this match and Andre has renewed interest after his return and win last week.

As usual we have our social and friendly chess evening on Tuesday and if you have time please come along and support this evening even for a short time.

Our Xmas function is nearing and we have 14 members attending and if anyone else would like to come they are more than welcome.

Happy chessing …..
