E Team draw at Cheddleton G

The E team earned a very respectable draw at title chasing Cheddleton G in the NSDCA Div 5 match last night. The hosts would have gone top of the table with a win but were denied in a hard fought match. Dave Price and Nigel Gardner picked up draws with white pieces against equally graded opponents while skipper Les Hall continued his fine recent form with another win on board 4. The E team continue their 50% record with 8 pts from 8 matches and currently sit 6th in the table and should be pleased to have held Cheddleton G who are 2nd in the table with 12 pts from 9 matches.

In addition to the 4 board match, Crewe took two junior members to play their first graded games outside the club. Harry Gardner and Charlie Dodd enjoyed their games and look forward to gaining further match  experience in the near future.
