28/10/15 Ashfield 2 v Mansfield 1

We'd played very well in defeat against Grantham 1 and probably matched this against the second best team in the League. We competed well before being gradually overpowered on Boards 1-3. Alan Robinson with about 20 seconds on his clock clinched an excellent draw against Chris Cantrill, and the Evergreen, Stan Cranmer, currently in a rich vein of form, won against George Wagenbach in a game which wouldn't be far short of a Notts. Veterans Title bout. Mansfield were made to work hard for the victory.  Result Ashfield 1.5- Mansfield 3.5.
