Tans v S Shields A

The Tans produced a stunning end to the season. Heavily outgraded, they were 2-0 down, and staring defeat in the face. But, within 30 seconds the match was turned round, as David, Tim and Alex all won.

Particular congratulations to David, his opponent Joe Watson had not previously lost this season. Also congratultions to Alex, we wish him well in Lincoln, and hope to see him again soon.

Tans v Jesmond Knights

Another close match. Neither side was at full strength, and maybe Tynedale were marginally stronger.

First to finish was Tim, who offered a draw after a torrid opening petered out. Maybe I should have persevered, but I was just glad to to get anything. Mariana seemed to have an awkward position with Chris’s Queen well placed on d6, and seemingly in control, but Chris couldn’t find a way through, and a draw was agreed. Peter was on the difficult end of a Bishop and 6(?) pawn endings, Liam had chances but a draw was agreed when he ran short of time. Gary once again carried the team, another fine win, and I believe a Rook sacrifice. David enjoyed his game, and gave John plenty to think about after a difficult opening. Sadly for the Tans, his loss meant the match was drawn.

Even though the Tans have 8 points from 9 matches, they are still not safe. The table shows 8 of the 11 teams all bunched together, with the title still up for grabs, and relegation undecided.

Durham City v Tans

The first division is very unpredictable, we have lost some matches we hoped to win, and this was one that on paper we might expect to lose. Three of our opponents are graded above 200, Szymon on board 4 is  179 and Robin is 155. So a glorious result for the Tans, and pride of place goes to Mariana, Gary & Peter.

Gosforth Empire v Tans

Thrashed. Not one of our better performances, with only Klauss having much to be proud of. He lost from a drawn position after going for a win. Fritz rated my game against Mike better than it felt over the board. An English / Kings Indian gave Mike lots of queen side pressure, and I eventually I wilted. Well played Gosforth.
