South Shields B v Reivers

Posted by fellman01 on April 20, 2018

This match was played at South Shields on Thursday April 19th, with the following line-up:

  1. Brian Towers (158) v Ian Mackay (137)
  2. Ian Maughan (138) v Steve Larkin (116)
  3. Eddie Czestochowski (131) v Derek Blair (112)
  4. Chris Sayers (133) v Dave Humphreys (82)
  5. Asanga Gunasekera v Default

Derek’s game finished first, when the loss of a piece early on proved too great a handicap.

Dave was holding his own till he allowed a lethal knight fork of King and Queen.

Ian notched up what he described as a fairly dull end-of-season draw.

And finally, Steve accepted the offer of a draw in a complex position with opposite-coloured bishops and Steve’s two pawns to Ian’s one.

So South Shields won 4-1 and both sides completed their season. Fortunately for the Reivers, there was nothing at stake, as they finished third from bottom of the division, having played 10 games, winning 3, drawing one and losing 6.

Many thanks to all 10 players who turned out for the side. The season’s statistics follow:
