Bournemouth A v Southbourne B
19 October 2021
Home result 2.5 : 1.5
Bournemouth A Team success !
The Bournemouth A Team won their first, Division 2 League match of Season 2021/22, against Southborne B last night; edging past a strong Southborne Team by the score of 2.5 - 1.5 points.
The result hinged on the final two games to finish, where Paul - the Swindler - 😇 Errington, on Board 4, won in dramatic fashion and Dennis Stokes-Carter on Board 1, a pawn down, secured the draw from a complicated position. These results added to Thorsten Meyer's nice win on Board 3, sealed a good victory in a hard fought match.
All this played out under our new lighting improvements (many thanks to Joe Fearnhead !). Yep, it was a bright night, especially for " Swindler Errington" who played on full intensity, delivering the finishing swindle with a burst of energy; in a truly light-bulb moment.
John Torrance, Team Captain
