East Cheshire v Ashton

1 Bill Tait 1 – 0 T Chatys

2 Geoff Clarke 0 – 1 G Chatys

3 Hartley Oldham 1/2 – 1/2 A Abbas

4 Duncan Chandley 0 – 1 S Hayman

5 Roy Burrows 0 – 1 K Ye

Match Result East Cheshire 1 1/2 – Ashton 3 1/2

A good night’s chess. Roy spoke warmly about his 8yr old opponent who played swiftly and impressed Roy. Duncan had a winning position when I looked and then somehow had the tables turned on him by another young opponent – hard luck!

I think Hartley was relieved to get a draw and I managed a winning end game to defeat one member of the Chatys family. Geoff C played the elder Chatys and after being up against it suddenly scared his opponent with a strong attack on his K at the end. Despite his flourish ….it wasn’t to be and he eventually had to resign.

The C Team lost its first match of the season. A super win from Edwin who seems to be following in Paul Crusher Bamford’s chess-steps! An excellent showing from Geoff S in his first match for EC since his expensive signing from Bramhall (or was it a free transfer?). Geoff held on and might have squeezed out a draw however time had its way in the end. We were heavily out graded and unfortunately have to play them again in a couple of weeks. I went all out for a win but my attack fizzled out in the middle game when what I thought was a potentially winning attack on his K resulted in my Q getting trapped!
PS Can Anyone buy Andy B a satnav fro Christmas please.
Many thanks to all for turning out and we look forward, never back.
