D & E teams share spoils with Cheddleton

Last night saw our D team play Cheddleton G, alongside the E team against Chedd H. The D team emerged with a 3.5-0.5 win as Chris Rhodes, Les Hall and Dylan Sayers all got a full point to add to Martin Gill’s draw. The win takes the D team up to 4th in the Division 5 table and the outside possibility of a late title challenge.

In the other match the E team put up a great fight against Chedd H but lost 1.5-2.5. There was a first win for newcomer Amy Lovatt on board 3, and a great individual effort from Richard Hind to get a draw against an opponent 79 grading points higher, which I can only assume is Richard’s best ever result !

In other news the club had one of its most successful nights with over 20 members attending including several juniors in coaching sessions and others playing in the club’s winter tournament where Karl Lockett beat David Hulme and Steve Ballantyne had a win.
