Mansfield 1 v Ashfield 2  27.10.16

Our rejigged second team faced title contenders, Mansfield, at the Brown Cow. We gave them a good battle, although ultimately their strength prevailed. Jim Burnett's wave of attacks broke through Alan Robinson's defences. Jon Tait, the strongest player in the County, swatted my challenge aside. Steve Bak pressed too hard for a win to help the team cause. John Shaw's game started very sedately but culminated in a Blitz finish in which he was undone by Mansfield's latest very able recruit, Peter Ackley. Nigel Wright notched a win over Janos Wagenbach to score our only game point. Having strengthened their squad with 2 new players, Mansfield can push Grantham 1 all the way this season. I was very happy with the performance of all our team on the night.

Result  Mansfield 1 v Ash 2      4-1
