Nomads won the toss and played White on odd boards. We gained an early lead with a win on board 5 but Aughton soon equalised by winning board 6. On board 4, Keith seemed to be doing well in a double-rook ending but the next time I looked he had only one rook and his opponent had two… Steve defended actively to gain a draw in an ending a pawn down. Henry’s game looked unclear to me from the outset and eventually ended in another draw. Last to finish was Ken who ran out of time in an ending the exchange down, making the final score 4-2 to the visitors and leaving Nomads 2 to try our luck in the Plate competition. Thanks to everyone for turning out.
