Tans v S Shields B

Posted by Tim W on February 14, 2020

What a strange evening. As I opened the front door of the Parish Hall, the alarm went off.
Absolutely deafening, but nobody in Corbridge seemed too concerned.
After a few phone calls, the caretaker arrived and turned the alarm off, but not before I had
had gone into panic mode.
Many thanks to Tim Barmby & John Morgan who both played at short notice.

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.

Tans v Forest Hall C

Posted by Tim W on January 18, 2019

The NCA Second division is a competitive league, both teams put out strong teams, and this was a hard fought match.
Briefly, Derek lost a rook, a mistake with little time left on the clock, defending against a marching passed pawn.
My (Tim’s) opponent resigned in a position with chances for both sides. It seemed premature, but he was about to lose the exchange, and I think he just didn’t know what to do. He could have tried to exploit an open file and an exposed king, and then play for either a win or a perpetual check.
James won, his pawn ending technique proving better than his young opponent.
Ian surprised me a little, he accepted a draw, and from 4 boards away I thought he had chances in a Bishop(same colour)& Pawns ending.
Peter also surprised me, I thought he was losing, but suddenly appeared with a win. Not sure what happened.
So a good win, 3½-1½, and some rather odd games.

Gosforth Ivy v Tans

Posted by Tim W on December 4, 2018

Another hard match, but this time lady luck was smiling on us. Tim was completely outplayed by John Wheeler, but John made one mistake, and lost a bishop and the game. Elsewhere James was short of time, and accepted a draw when offered by Dave Stebbings. Ian was lucky to escape with a draw after misplaying a 2R v R&B ending. So, lucky point for the Tans.
