MSL Round up

MSL Division1 result

Horsham 1 made a masterful second in the MSL Division 1 with Horsham 2 achieving a very creditable sixth position, ahead of Crowbough 1 and Haywards Heath 1.

In the second division Horsham 3 just missed out on promotion, coming third. Horsham 4 had a tough season and will be relegated for next season.

The third division saw Horsham 5 come fourth and Horsham 6 ended bottom of the league this season.

The club played a total of 253 games in the MSL scoring 130 points. Well done to all those involved,

Horsham 1 take 2nd place in top division after final win

The first team travelled down to Crowborough for the last match of the Mid-Sussex League season, and came away 3-2 victors making us runners-up in the league overall...

Another big win for Horsham 1

This was a home match played with a full strength team against an under-strength Lewes side, who made a good fight of it but lost out in some highly tactical games...

Horsham 1 beat Haywards Heath 1

Just catching up with some match scores, I didn't play in this one so no report but here are the board results for the record...

Horsham 2 narrowly defeated once more

Horsham 2 completed their Division 1 fixtures on Tuesday with another narrow 2-3 defeat, this time at home to Eastbourne 1 - the 5th time this season that we have suffered this score-line!
Alex faced an on-form Rasa who executed her attack clinically to secure the only victory on the night. Paul held the initiative for much of his game and won a pawn but the resulting Rook, Knight and Pawn ending was difficult and his opponent was able to equalise.

Horsham 2 edged out again

The 2nd team acquitted themselves quite well in a tough away fixture losing 2-3 to Worthing 1.
A special mention for Alex and Peter who both drew against opponents who out-graded them significantly on Boards 1 & 2 respectively. In fact we went home thinking we had a good chance of drawing the match as Alex seemed to have the initiative in his position at adjudication - unfortunately on deeper analysis there was not enough advantage to give a win.
David Graham (201) ½-½ Alex Freeland (182) (W)
Michael Nicholas (200) ½-½ Peter Harbott (171)

A frustrating night for Horsham 2

Horsham 2 had another close encounter, this time against Crowborough 1 on 15th March. At adjudication we were 0-1 down, Roy having lost with the black pieces to a highly talented junior who has represented England.

Setback for Horsham 2

The 2nd team travelled down to Lewes 1 last Tuesday and were unfortunately narrowly defeated 2-3. As expected this proved to be a very tight affair between two evenly matched teams and there were some interesting games.

Foiled again by Brighton

Horsham 1 were held to a draw by Brighton's second team last week...

Horsham 3 travel East for a great win

Horsham 3 travelled to Eastbourne last week for a match where we were missing our top board player Ian due to illness. Thankfully John Cannon was able to step in on board 5 and we had a full team.
