Horsham progress in McArthur Cup at last!

In previous seasons Horsham have had to face Brighton in the first round of the McArthur Cup and have progressed no further. This year we had to visit their venue but to face a different team - Woodpushers...

Welcome Win for Horsham 3 away to Brighton & Hove

Horsham 3 registered its first point of the season with a convincing win over Brighton and Hove 3.
Chris Heath easily held Robin Jones in a Sicilian, before John Marshall, playing the Sicilian as Black (!!?) gained a piece and a first win for Horsham. This was followed by Richard's subtle sacrificial tactics on the Q side duping his opponent to succumb to a Kingside attack and defeat.

Port cinques beneath Horsham onslaught

First off, thanks to Phil for the top quality pun. Secondly, I can report success for Horsham in the farthest-flung corner of Sussex...
