Horsham 4 storm to victory


Horsham 4 pulled off a comprehensive victory last night beating Eastbourne 3 4.5-0.5. Some fine chess all round confirms their position as third in the fourth division.

Meanwhile in the committee room Horsham 2 were having a tougher evening playing Hastings 2. Paul Taylor managed a draw but Peter Harbott lost and Anthony Higgs drew an adjourned game against a 210 player. Unfortunately both Phil Stimpson and Dix Roberts both lost despite Dix having a threatening outside passed pawn.

In the club games Nick Warren and Paul Richardson drew again in their Knockout Quarter-final despite Paul's threatening passed pawns. Ian Comley managed to beat James Mansson despite being ane xchange down in a tense game. There were other combative games taking place but I was a little engrossed.

This is the second week in a row a new player has come along for the first time - both are very welcome but I suspect they will be quickly taking scalps from the more established players!
