A difficult night for the team at Worksop, with no winners.  It was good to see the return of Andy Lee and he appeared to be in a commanding position.  However, accurate defence from Phill resulted in a draw offer.  After much deliberation Andy accepted.  Michael had blundered a rook against David who proceeded to convert his advantage for the win.  I didn’t see any of Dave’s game but a loud moan indicated another loss and we were 2½-½ down.  Andrew offered me a draw and although the position looked dead drawn, I was considering playing on to try for a win.  However, at this time, Peter had lost a complicated match with Ionel in which both players had winning chances, and so I accepted the draw.  Steve and Robert quickly agreed a draw to finish the match resulting in a 4½-1½ loss.

That’s us done for the league in 2018.  This season is already turning out to be better than last year.  Hopefully our good form will continue into 2019.
