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.

Heroic Horsham 2 hold Hastings 1

A superb result deserves some mighty fine alliteration...

Two seconds from success...

Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics

Now that Horsham 5’s 2014/15 season has finished I thought it would be useful to provide a (light-hearted!?) end of term report in advance of Ian’s wider presentation to the AGM in September.

MATCHES:

We played 7 matches of which we won 3, lost 3 and drew 1.

PLAYERS:

We used 10 players who played a total of 34 games (excluding 1 default). Of these we won 13, lost 11 (including 1 default) and drew 11 – giving us a win percentage of 37.14%.

If you are in a space ship…

Horsham 2 off the mark against Lewes 1

Match points have been hard to come by this season for Horsham 2, but we chalked up our first win of the season against Lewes 1 last Tuesday...

Another win for Horsham 4!

On Tuesday the Horsham 4th team travelled away to East Grinstead and with our full team arriving early we could start straight away and the two remaining EG players arrived just as we started, unfortunately this lead to a mix up on boards 3 & 4 where there players took the wrong seats and as only noticed 10 minutes into the games, we had to carry on.
