A1 v Mansfield, A3 v W.Bridford 1  3.10.18

Eleven* good men and true turned out to take on the twin might of League champions, Mansfield and West Bridgford 1 and we made a pretty good fist of both games.. Our two top boards played very well in defeat against 2 of the best players in the county and we secured very solid draws on Board 2.. We also shared the bottom boards in each match and the decisive result was Board 3

. Our visitors from Mansfield gave a good boost to the bar takings but Kev Simpson won the battle of the Old Golden Hen drinkers.David had a crunching win against an out-of-sorts Chris but  the old warhorse, George, hit back against Bob,tr.

 The A3 result was quite possibly 1 of the best results in our club's history.  I think it's highly unlikely that our third team will have drawn against WB1 before  or even if this fixture has been played. It was a very tense affair with Steve Bak breaking through deep in the game to seal the match draw. The result could  have been even better, John was playing another nicely controlled game before  he spotted and played a mirage mating attack. Captain, Trevor had a very sure-footed game.* His only slip was recruiting 6 players, giving Peter a wasted journey
.
 The night again showed the growing depth of our club's playing strength.
