First match of the season - Horsham 3rd vs Horsham 4th

In the MSL division 2 both Horsham 3rd and 4th teams had to start the season with a match against each other and even with a large grading difference a win is never guaranteed.

Horsham 4 top the 3rd division!

The Horsham 4th team had a great end to the season with their re-arranged final match against Haywards Heath 2 last night. I won’t go into detail about the games as we seriously out graded them on all boards but a 4.5 – 0.5 win gives us the top place in the division.

Thanks to everyone who played for us this year and 2nd division here we come! :O)

Runners-up position on tie break for Horsham 3

In our last match of the season, Horsham 3 drew 2.5 - 2.5 with Woodpushers 1 to finish joint top of the league on points. However on tie-break we scored fewer game points than Brighton 2 and have to settle for the runners-up position.
Nevertheless Horsham 3 are entitled to promotion to Division 1 where they would join Horshams 1 & 2. Altogether a very satisfactory season for us. I am grateful for all the support and efforts of the members who played for us this season.

It doesn’t make for great reading but the games were much closer than the final score line.

BRIGHTON ROCK(ed) -- by Horsham 3 !!

Time and tide wait for no man....
A trip to Hove for a crunch match, provided a sensational evening. This was the final match of the season for Brighton 2. With 6.5 points from 7 games, a win would see them become League champions with promotion to Division 1 as the prize.
Horsham 3,unbeaten with 5/5, were warmly welcomed,as familiar faces settled down to battle it out. Brighton significantly out-graded Horsham on every board (see teams below).
Mick tried a sacrificial attack, but excellent defence trapped his queen - and Horsham were 1 down.
