5/10/15 Newark 2 v Ashfield 3
An Ashfield 2 engine, sporting a third team name-plate, was shunted off the track at the Newark sidings. Our default on Board 1 was followed by my quick loss. An inaccuracy followed by a mistake just out of the opening were summarily punished. Alan was also under heavy fire from the opening, which despite active defence he was unable to wriggle out of. Jerry, in a winning position, switched off and fell into Richard Myers' fiendish trap.Stan scored a patient win, keeping his head, whist all around him were losing theirs.Newark were far too good for us.
 Result 4.5 - 0.5 Beware Newark on a wet, dark night.
