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.

Horsham 4 win convincingly against Woodpushers 3

David Britton reports:

Woodpushers fielded 4 juniors on the night and there were some back rank issues for some which Gary and Julie took advantage of. Paul was the first to wrap up and I followed shortly after due to the juniors playing too quick while Ron secured the draw against their only senior.

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

Horsham 4 v Crowborough 2 Result

Horsham 2 and Horsham 4 at home last night

Horsham 2 hosted Knoll Knights in division 1 while Horsham 4 challenged Crowborough 2.

Horsham 2 saw wins for Paul Taylor and Ian Comley balanced with a loss for Peter Harbott. We look slightly worse in the two adjudicated games for Mike Forster and Anthony Higgs...no feedback yet from overnight analysis!

I couldnt pick up on the Horsham 4 results but will post here as they come in

Horsham 4 beat Uckfield 2 Away

Although Horsham 4 lost their most recent match, they did have more success in their previous fixture, which was away at Uckfield on the Wednesday, 24th October. They defeated the Uckfield second team narrowly 3-2, after their opponents decided to resign the unfinished board 2 game rather than go to adjudication.

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

Horsham 4 go down to Worthing 3 at home

Horsham 4 suffered a heavy defeat to Worthing 3 at home last Tuesday, going down by 4.5 to 0.5. There was the odd moment of misfortune (e.g. Laurence Draper's blunder against David Wallis when the exchange up), but generally the team was outclassed by a side containing a trio of junior Grahams.

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