8.2.15 Mansfield 2 v Ashfield 3

Ashfield moved to the dizzy heights of fourth with this victory. Mansfield edged the top 2 boards, but our team's strength in depth prevailed on boards 3-5 with wins for Stan and Nigel and a draw by Trevor. On Board 2 David drew, reportedly missing a mate in one. On Board 1 Steve Bak lost out to George Wagenbach. Ashfield now sit on 12 points from 11 games.
 Mansfield remain at the foot of the table with no points. George, who in the past has been a very successful performer for them, has had an uncharacteristically poor season. Although this was against our club, it's good to see a return to winning form for one of the seasoned warriors of Notts chess.     Result 2-3
