Ash 3 v Uni. 1  29.3.17

Second- placed University and third-placed Ashfield fought out an exciting draw. Our team suffered an early reverse with an uncharacteristic quick top board loss for Nigel Wright. Pete Clarke notched a draw andwe took the lead with two fine wins by Steve Bak and Stan Cranmer. Steve played another cavalier attacking game. Stan won the exchange, and fluently converted into a winning endgame. Trevor had drawing chances, but succumbed in severe time pressure. This result keeps University in a promotion spot, a point ahead of A3.

 Both sides have tough final fixtures, and Ashfield could yet make up this deficit 

Result  Ash 3 v Uni. 1   2.5 - 2.5
