Nomads 3 v Ashfield 4

The result of Nomads 3 v Ashfield 4, played 14/05/2018, is as follows:


Nomads 3                             4  -  1                     Ashfield 4

Dave Dunne                         1  -  0                     Malcolm Jackson
Clement Owusu                    1  -  0                    Trevor Lewis
Ivan Pedro                           0.5 - 0.5                 Richard Dyce
A. Young                              0.5 - 0.5                 Ric Dawson
S. Swanwick                         1  -  0                    Default

The curtain drew on another club League season as our fatigued team playing its fourth game in under a month was soundly beaten. A defaulted board did not help, but the game was won by the 2 very good wins for the home team on the top boards. The unavailabilty of George Heath on Monday nights has cost the team in the second half of the season, although the team gathered enough points in the bag in the first half of the season to finish in sixth place in the division..

Ashfield 4 v W. Bridgford 4  25.4.19

Our fourth team have had a busy fortnight , with resources fully stretched. The captain would have been veryu pleased to welcome back George Heath. They came up though against a visiting team who played very well on the night. Malcolm was lucky to save his game. Pete looked winning but his opponent cleverly spotted the chance to play into a lone King v King, Bishop and Rook's pawn ending. Pete's Bishop was of the wrong colour and unable to force the King away from the intended queening scare, a known theoretical draw.:


Ashfield 4                            1  -  4                    West Bridgford 4

Malcolm Jackson                0.5 - 0.5                Jose Serano
Ray Sayer                            0  -  1                   Allan Brown
Peter Clarke                       0.5 - 0.5                 Bob Garnett
Richard Dyce                       0  -  1                   Bob Abrahart

Ashfield 2 v West Bridgford 2  25.4.18

Our second team signed off the season with one of our better team performances, avenging our low point of the season, the 4.5 - 0.5 loss to the same opponents in February. At least we were able to end the season on a positive note which lifts to a finishing position of fourth in the table.

Ashfield 4 v West Notts 3   18.4.18

Games have come thick and fast for our team who scored a good draw against the West Notts youngsters team. There may have been a significant age difference between the teams, but there was nothing between them over the board.

Nomads 1 v Ashfield 3   16.4.18

Ashfield needed a win to stay up but couldn't quite achieve this at Nomads. Presented with promotion, A3 have exceeded all expectations this year and have not been out of place in Division 2. Nomads, winners of Division 3  last season have had an excellent season, finishing just outside a promotion slot. Nomad's top boards showed their effectiveness. We edged the lower boards, with good wins for Steve and Trevor.

Ashfield 4 v Nomads 3    11.4.18

While the first team were defeating West Notts to ensure Division ! survival, Ashfield 4 were battling problems of their own making. As a club we rarely default boards, so to default 2 boards in a home match was a rare occurrence. It will be a match that Richard will want to forget.

The result of Ashfield 4 v Nomads 3, played 11/04/2018, is as follows:


Ashfield 4                        1.5 - 2.5                      Nomads 3

Malcolm Jackson              0  -  1                        Dave Dunne

Ashfield 1 v West Notts 1  11.4.18

Arriving at 10.00 p.m., I was greeted by Neil who told me our first team were losing. Fortunately his information was about 20 minutes out of date. David had been in trouble in his game, but salvaged it. Derek notched the first win. Steve's and John's quickly followed. John's win in a complex, tactical game against Jonah was the stand-out result. Glenn looked to have at least a draw in hand against Adyita, playing on the increment, until a careless slip was punished to the full. ( Phil0

Steve - Cue a rendition of “The Great Escape” theme tune!
 
After 7 consecutive losses in the middle of the season, a run of 3 wins has seen us just avoid the drop – and maintain my record of never being relegated as a captain!
 
It looked a tight match though I thought we always had a slight edge overall. ...

Gambit X v Ash 2   10.4.18

Against the top teams we've come up short on the top boards. This was repeated against the Division 2 winners. Mike  saw Jerry off pretty smartly. I was always on the back foot against Florian, and played an unsound move which cost me my c pawn, an exchange and the game. Beneath the top boards we were competitive. Neil had a rock-solid draw. Nigel showed his improvement with a fine draw against Steve ECF 166, finding some resourceful defence. Alan managed to emerge with a draw under strong pressure from Graham .
