Gosforth Salters v Tans

Posted by Tim W on January 29, 2019

The Tans had to field a weakened team, but called in David Wrigley to help.
The match went right down to the wire. Playing without increments and needing to win, David Wrigley’s game went to a tense endgame scramble, his speciality.
Elsewhere Tim & Peter had tame draws. Dave Foster Jnr was heavily outgraded on Board 5, played well, but two pawns lost in a sharp exchange proved fatal.
Dave Humphreys had the better of an awkward Q, R & pawn endings, but was caught by a perpetual check, a fine draw that could so easily have been a win.
Although Gosforth Salters are bottom of the league they are a strong team, and this is a point won, rather than one lost. Well played all, especially David Wrigley and Dave Humphreys.
