Horsham 1 scrape draw with St Francis and Haywards Heath 1

Horsham 1 just managed to scrape a draw against St Francis and Haywards Heath 1 after the three unfinished games from the match were agreed to be one win for Horsham and two draws. The match, played on the Tuesday of last week (30th October), saw the first team confronted by a strengthened Haywards Heath outfit, who have acquired the services of former Crawley stalwarts Chris Baker and Robert Noyce.

Knockout 2nd Round

33 players at the club tonight with 16 internal competitions being played. Joe Wilby ended up with a pretty checkmate while James Mansson overcame Peter Harbott. Dix Roberts and Nick Warren were fighting to the very end of the evening with just minutes left on the clock before agreeing a draw.

Some great chess was played and there were some interesting endings - Paul Kington did well to convert a Rook and Rook Pawn ending against Richard Barrowclough.

Horsham 4 beat Uckfield 2 Away

Although Horsham 4 lost their most recent match, they did have more success in their previous fixture, which was away at Uckfield on the Wednesday, 24th October. They defeated the Uckfield second team narrowly 3-2, after their opponents decided to resign the unfinished board 2 game rather than go to adjudication.

The results of the individual games are given in the table below:

Horsham 4 go down to Worthing 3 at home

Horsham 4 suffered a heavy defeat to Worthing 3 at home last Tuesday, going down by 4.5 to 0.5. There was the odd moment of misfortune (e.g. Laurence Draper's blunder against David Wallis when the exchange up), but generally the team was outclassed by a side containing a trio of junior Grahams.

The results of the individual games are given in the table below:
