So Near, Yet So Far

Mark Baldock submitted the following report on the recent Horsham 5 vs Horsham 4 match.

Earlier this week saw the first fixture in Division 3 of the Mid-Sussex League. And what a fixture! A keenly competitive match between Horsham 4 and the new newly promoted Horsham 5. The latter faced an average deficit of 20 grading points on each board and, as the home team, played black on 3 out of 5 boards. But did this didn’t curb the enthusiasm and fighting sprit of the home team? No it didn’t as they ground out 4 very solid draws on Boards 2 to 5 and were just edged out on Board 1 right at the death.

Quickplay Rounds 1 and 2

Last night saw the start of the Quickplay Knockout competition. The aim was to complete at least the first couple of rounds and this was largely completed, with only the top eighth failing to do so as a consequence of the rearranged D Gray - Z Rustom fixture not being played. Indeed, there were a few people keen enough to play their third round matches as well, so we already have one semi-finalist in the main competition and the plate!
