University 1 v Ashfield 2 (10 April 2019)

We knew that in our final League game of the season we had to earn a point more than Nomads, playing on the same night, to snatch the runner-up spot. We were helped by a board default, and also Neil and myself seized commanding early advantages. We didn't make the most of these. My opponent developed some threats, until I found the winning line, which had been in the position much earlier. David's draw assured us of at least a point. Neil had lost his dominant position, but spotted a tactic to claim a draw to win us the match.

On the way home, we learnt that Nomads had lost at Long Eaton , confirming our second place finish.

At Christmas we were mid-table on 50%. Since then we've been very consistent . In the second half of the season we've won four and drawn 3 games, losing only 7 individual boards. We finished the season with a board difference of +13, matching University, winners of the division. A2's promotion ensures the club retains its place in Division 1, which it has occupies since 1992-3.
