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)

Horsham 4 get hammered 4-1 by Uckfield 1

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

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.

Horsham 4 pick up a great away win vs Worthing 3

I’d like to start by thanking John Marshall for his commitment to get to our Worthing match last night, after train delays to his morning commute he was faced by several more delays in the evening but still managed to make the venue just in time. Unfortunately even after knocking out the first 20 moves quickly he was still very much down on time which gave his opponent enough of an edge to take the game away from him.

Melusi’s game was also moving quickly however he had built a very strong attacking position with which he was able to tactically control and win his game, 1 all.

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.

Horsham 4th team secured their position in the 3rd division on Tuesday with a great victory over Brighton & Hove 5.

We had a rather strange start to the night with one of the opposition arriving on time with the message that their top board player would be racing over from Brighton to play. Thankfully the other team members arrived at 7.45 and we were able to being on boards 2-5.

Horsham 4th vs Uckfield 1st

Last Wednesday we headed over to Uckfield to face their 1st team which was always going to be much tougher than their 2nd.

Horsham 4 vs Uckfield 2 - 5-0!

Unfortunately Uckfield were not able to field a full team for this match which gave us a 2 game lead but we still needed at least the one game, you never know...

Horsham 4th vs Crowborough 2nd

Facing a very strong Crowborough 2nd team with an 88 point advantage our guys faced a tough challenge indeed (I hid a few tables away!).

Horsham 4th vs Woodpushers 1st - 2-3 loss

On a very wet Wednesday evening the Horsham 4th headed over to Hove to face Woodpushers 1st, our team Bob Lanzer, Melusi, Julie, Roger Waddingham and myself were out graded on nearly every board but I was still hopeful for a good result.
