Horsham 4 lose to East Grinstead 2 in a night of blunders

Dave Britton reports:

The first blunder was from me as once again we had white on evens,

Jon lost the exchange and soon after the game in a queens Indian with neither player castling, Julie had time trouble and missed the opportunity to equalise with RxR+ before Norman exchanged the last pair of Rooks and gained a piece. Gary got his bishop trapped in a difficult position while in my game Bob allowed me to fork both Knights with Queen by move 11 in a Sicilian-French

Horsham 4 v St Francis & Haywards Heath 2

Horsham 4 defeat St Francis 3

Dave Britton reports:

The match results from Thursday night are as follows: A good result on the night with Jon Taylor winning on his debut in the mid Sussex being the exchange up while both Richard and myself got in some time trouble but managed to secure the wins. Rons game was adjourned for further analysis which we have now conceded in a rook pawn endgame.

The results of the individual games are given in the table below:

Horsham 4 defeat Brighton 6

Dave Britton reports:

A good result on the night, I didn't get a chance to look at all the games as I had a disastrous opening with black but managed to produce a 5 move forced checkmate with rook, bishop & knight. Julie got a bishop up in the endgame when opponent resigned which secured us the win.

Half way through the season and still on schedule for the top 4 finish I'm hoping for so Horsham 4 can stay in the 3rd Division next season when it splits into 4 Divisions.
