Beckenham and Bromley 5 win the Tom Fuller Cup

We led a charmed life throughout this season. We achieved just 19 points out of 32 available from the 8 matches. That, you might not expect would be enough to win the league, then the semi-final, and now, on 18th June, the final to bring the cup home to Beckenham. Beckenham 5 and 6 were bothContinue reading “Beckenham and Bromley 5 win the Tom Fuller Cup”

Rosebowl: Annual Quickplay Championship 2022

17 club members turned up to this event on 25th May and so we divided into two groups. The top 3 from each group went through to the final round. The result of the final round was a tie between John Duggan and Ian Snape and so we went to a playoff which John DugganContinue reading “Rosebowl: Annual Quickplay Championship 2022”

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.

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”
