POOLE WIN THE TEAM BATTLE AGAIN

Congratulations to all 8¬† Poole players that took part in last night’s team battle.

We scored 86 points with the 2nd place team Highcliffe Castles scoring 47, Southbourne were 3rd with 45 points.

Those that played were 3 new players namely, Martin¬† O’Neill, Tony Sanderson and Zander Booth (Junior). Zander scored 14 points and came 8th out of 30 players.

John Weatherlake, Adam Jaggard, Mike Duggan, Richard Alliss and Oscar Garcia who amassed 40 of our 86 points! All were major contributors to our success.

I watched the games played at break neck speed and was amazed by the accuracy and tenacity of all players and hope this form will translate to normal over the board chess when we return.

Last night’s win gave brought us to a total of 14 wins versus the nearest rivals Southbourne on 7, great stuff.

Thank you to our team of 8 last night and well done. Phew!
