D team go top of League Division 2

On Tuesday night the D team played away against Alsager B. The squad was considerably strengthened by the addition of Cyrus Pereira for the first time which allowed us to out rate our opponents by approx 600 pts. The match was never in doubt as an early draw on board 3 by David Hulme was soon followed by comfortable wins from Cyrus (bd 1) and then Martin Frisher (bd 4). Captain David Lambton took his time to win on bd 2 and thereby keep up his unbeaten run for the team with 7 pts from 9 games, and conclude the match 3.5-0.5. This result takes the D team to the top of the table with 14pts from 9 matches ahead of a crunch match next Tuesday at home against Stafford (who have 9pts and two games in hand).
