Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley 5 3-1 Medway 2

The good news is we won the semi-final but not as easy as the scorecard may suggest.   Andrew Dovey lost a piece but fought back for a brilliant draw, the first game to finish. The second game to end was Anthony Barnett’s. With only 10 minutes left against his opponent’s hour, Anthony achieved a remarkable two-moveContinue reading “Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley 5 3-1 Medway 2”

Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley teams promoted in their first season at 4NCL Online

It couldn’t have gone better for our debuting teams in the 4NCL Online Division 5 in its 5th season. Beckenham topped the table with six wins and a draw (13 points) and Bromley came in 8th place with +3, =2, -2 (8 points), just enough to secure the promotion to division to Division 4. FinalContinue reading “Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley teams promoted in their first season at 4NCL Online”

Captain’s report: Coulsdon B 2-2 West Wickham B

Last night we played a very strong Coulsdon team (heavily outgraded on boards 2-4) and managed a draw. Thank you Ian for playing and securing your win; didn’t see much of the game up in the rafters! But I assume you turned the screws on him from the point I saw to. He also hadContinue reading “Captain’s report: Coulsdon B 2-2 West Wickham B”

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. MartinContinue reading “Captain’s report: Beckenham and Bromley 2.5-1.5 Sidcup 3”

Captain’s report: Lewisham 5 2-2 Beckenham and Bromley 5

Beckenham and Bromley 5 got a 2-2 draw at Lewisham on 23rd March in their fifth match. Ian Mills had a straightforward win and Andrew Dovey and Martin Newman recorded draws. On 30th March, Lewisham  5 visited Sidcup, winning 4-0 against a slightly weaker than the normal-looking team. This leaves us needing to win our sixth match toContinue reading “Captain’s report: Lewisham 5 2-2 Beckenham and Bromley 5”

Captain’s report: Gravesend 2 3-3 Beckenham and Bromley 3

Travelling to the farthest club in the Kent Metropolitan division – Gravesend – our 3rd team managed to draw the match last night. Pascal and Steve drew their games and all the other ones were taken by the Black pieces, with Rudy and Adrian scoring full points for our team. With one match left inContinue reading “Captain’s report: Gravesend 2 3-3 Beckenham and Bromley 3”
