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.

Tans v Jesmond Knights

Posted by Tim W on April 13, 2018

The last match of the season and another fine performance from the Tans, but once again no match points. Outgraded by an average of 39 points, the Tans lost 1½-3½, but it was very even, and although the match score was probably fair, it could easily have been better for the Tans . All fought well and hard, but particular congratulations to David, who was disappointed to only draw with Merim Bilalic, a fide master graded 2267 (about ECF 210).

Thanks also, to Bruce (outgraded 157-111)  for a for a fine fighting display against John Turnock, very even right to the end, when John forced a rook’s pawn through. Finally many thanks to all who have turned out for the Tans this year.

Gosforth Empire v Tans

Posted by Tim W on February 20, 2018

Heavily outgraded, the Tans went down to a 4-1 defeat. All our opponent were graded above 170, with the top three boards over 200. But all games were well contested, no-one was embarrassed, and Peter & Gary picked up excellent draws.

Gosforth Salters v Tans

Posted by Tim W on December 19, 2017

An entertaining match, once again the Tans were outgraded. With the score 1-1, from draws for Gary and Ian, Tim produced a swindle that almost won his game, and  the match score looks promising (1½-1½). But then David lost from a good position, and it was left to Derek to rescue  a draw.  On paper this looks a good result, but it could easily have been worse (or better). Best results of the night Derek and Gary.
