A1 v WB 1  13/9/17

S Burke           1 – 0        R Richmond
G Halfpenny   1 –0         C Budd
D Levens        1 – 0        R Murphy
J Herrington   1 – 0        M Hunter
P Morgan    1/2 – 1/2    R Abrahart

Our visitors brought a seriously depleted team. The stand-out win was Steve's against Robert, so often the Scourge of Ashfield. Steve somehow managed to turn the tables when Robert had a very strong initiative. Glenn had a commanding win. The match had a few notable firsts. Bob Abrahart scored a well-deserved draw on his first appearance in  Division 1 of the Notts. League. David Levens made a winning debut for our club despite Ross Murphy's spirited resistance. It was also our club's first match played under the new alternative time-limit  of 1 hour and 15 minutes + an increment of 10 seconds per move.
The final score probably flattered us.      A1 v WB1    4.5 - 0.5

The result of West Nottingham 3 v Ashfield 4, played 11/09/2017, is as follows:


West Nottingham 3                       2.5 - 2.5                    Ashfield 4

Armaan Gogia                              0.5 - 0.5                    Phil Morgan
Susie Wang                                    1  -  0                      Steve Bak

Vidura Mendis                                 0  -  1                     George Heath

The first club game of the season produced an exciting draw. Steve suffered an early reverse against one of WN's promising juniors.. Drafted in as a late reserve, I drew with another. Richard's draw and George's win squared the match. The last game in play became very tense and  could have gone either way. Each player may have been relieved at the end to earn the board and match draw.
