Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley 2.5-1.5 Sidcup 3

I am very pleased to report a fourth win (2.5-1.5) for the team against Sidcup 3 in the Tom Fuller League.

A drawn match would not be sufficient to guarantee a semi-final place.

On the night, progress was not straightforward.

Andrew Dovey on the top board lost to the experienced and probably under-rated Dave Gilbert.

Martin Newman evened the score with a rare win… which left the last two boards needing to bring home the points.

Ian Mills was winning easily until giving his queen away in a brief mental departure.  He then miraculously secured a draw.

Anthony Barnett heroically won yet another game in his improved season.

This completes the preliminary six fixtures and guarantees us a place in the semi-finals of the Kent championships where we will meet a team from mid-Kent.

Match card:

Martin Newman – 5th team captain
