Gambit 1 v Ash 1 29.11.16 

Gambit were weakened by the absence of two top players, which gave our team a good opportunity to pick up valuable points.This seemed the case in play with both bottom boards looking promising. Neil on Board 4 converted for his first win of the season. Alas, I blundered two winning positions v Drag Sudar, initially with a an ill-judged piece sacrifice , and also later after recovering from this. Drag duly punished my errors. Our middle order, Derek and Andrew scored draws, but Pete Mercs prised a win on top board against Steve Burke to clinch the home team's win, a tough pill to swallow on the night.

Result  Gambit 1 v Ashfield 1  3-2
