Poole E win over Southbourne E puts us top of Division 5!

Well done to team members this evening for achieving a win which pushes us up to the top of Div 5.

Joe Wood did well to win on board 1 (even after forgetting to press his clock and giving many minutes to his opponent!), yours truly won on board 2 (about time, too, I hear some cry), David Burt was unlucky on board 3, and Jamie took another win for the team.

It must be acknowledged, though that the B2 and B4 opponents were very late and lost on time, being way off achieving 35 moves in the necessary time. However, at least we played these two boards and hadn’t claimed wins on the basis of these opponents being late.

Now we’re top, we’ll need to try to stay there….
