Ashfield 3 v University 2     3.2.16

This was a very good win by Ashfield against a useful-looking  University team . The whole team played solidly. Steve Bak drew on Board 1, as Stan did on Board 3. David on Board 2 also looked to be at least drawing , but  got himself into Zugswang in a pawn ending. The victory was delivered on the bottom two boards by Trevor and Nigel. Trevor's win ended a long drought for him, and it was also good to see Nigel winning. This win seems to secure the team's mid-table standing in an exceptionally strong third division season.

Result 3-2   As Trevor's returned to winning form, we're drawn to play  in the Club Championship. Trevor, don't waste your wins in non-graded play!
