Horfield D slowly start to climb Division 3 (17/10/17)

Another curate’s egg performance from the D team. Graham and Mike seemed always to have preferable and improving prospects but Lee was in an aggressive mood from the outset. By eight o’clock his unsheltered white king appeared a casual onlooker as the pawns threw themselves on the enemy ; alas the assault backfired. Peter however kept his balance in a lengthy tactical swirl ; and while Alan accurately withstood long-lasting pressure I tried vainly to bring home a Milner-Barry Gambit in the spirit of the late Mike Wood. I must have missed a piece sacrifice somewhere!

(1) Alan Clarke 0.5 – 0.5 Grant Daley

(2) Howard Milbank 0.5 – 0.5 Nigel Wilcox

(3) Graham Strickland 1 – 0 Jack Tye

(4) Lee Abecasis 0 – 1 Yourat Kumar

(5) Peter Marks 1 – 0 Tom Carter

(6) Mike Jennings 1 – 0 Geoff Gammon


NB: Horfield were black on boards 1, 3 and 5
