Our last match of the season and one where Ashby needed at least a draw to be sure of safety
On top board Andrew played a solid game and despite Alan pressing for something there was nothing there and a solid draw was agreed.
On 2 Rupert was down on time but was better with winning chances at one stage but in an equal ending a draw was agreed.
Board 3 found Sean under a bit of pressure but solid enough. After some exchanges a fair draw was agreed.
On board 4 I did not play well on the queenside and should have been the exchange down. I attacked on the kingside and eventually broke through with a winning position when I won on time.
Neil on board 5 did not play well and after he offered an exchange of rooks found that it would lead to the loss of his queen. The exchange down he fought on but eventually lost.
So a drawn match and our team finish on 20 points which I believe to be the highest ever. Well played to all our players this season.
Well played to Ashby who will be playing division 1 chess next season. They deserve it.
