Horsham 1 defeated by Lewes 1

Horsham 1 suffered a defeat away to Lewes 1 last night. There was an early draw between Dix Roberts and Martin Costley, as the former was unable to dent the latter's solid Double Fianchetto formation. This was followed by defeats for Phil Stimpson and James Mansson, leaving Horsham 2.5-0.5 down with two to play. Unfortunately, no miracle occurred this time, as Dominic Lawson got the better of Paul Taylor. Anthony Higgs' win again Barry Maufe merely served to make the score respectable.

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

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.
