Match report: Horfield A vs Downend B (19 October)


Downend were without Oli and Graham but had managed to whistle up Michael as an excellent board 1 replacement and Tena, a WFM with a previous rating of 1960, for board six. We were 4 A team regulars short of a full team but the B team replacements did an entirely adequate job of winning 4 points out of 4. I wasn’t there but I know James won on time in a winning position and John got the better of the time scramble in a rook and pawn endgame, otherwise you can imagine the excitement yourself.

I had enquired with the Downend B captain whether we could rearrange the fixture. Glad they said no.
