A3 v A2   19.09.18

This was a hard fought contest which went the distance.Bob put A2 ahead. His mating attack worked despite overlooking a significant tactical resource played by Ray. Board 2 was drawn and scores were level when Peter Brace making his club debut scored an emphatic win over Neil. I can't remember seeing Neil's position on the board look so butchered.
The last 2 boards in play were tight but John's persistence broke through Trevor's resistance, and Alex managed to convert into a Bishop and Pawns ending where the activeness of his King was decisive. My thanks to Trevor for releasing John to play for A2 in our pre-match pow-wow. We now have a growing number of players in the club who can be effective performers in Division 2 of the Notts League.

3 T Lewis  - J Shaw   0-1
