Reivers v Tynemouth B

Posted by fellman01 on March 16, 2018

This Northumbrian League division 2 match was played at Corbridge on Thursday, March 15th, with the following line-up:

  1. Derek Harris (u) v Keith Rockett (151)
  2. Ian Mackay (137) v Steve Burnell (145)
  3. Steve Larkin (116) v Dave Hair (136)
  4. Christine Moorcroft (92) v Dave Jarema (137)
  5. Dave Humphreys (82) v Ray Garside (126)

Given this line-up, it looked as though the most we could hope for was to draw the match. After an hour’s play, all games looked more or less even, but thereafter I saw nothing of the other games until my own was finished, by which time Derek had won and Christine, Dave and myself had all lost. Ian’s game was the last to finish, and his opponent conceded when two pawns down. So a narrow loss by 3 points to 2 against a significantly stronger side.
