Nomads B vs Rotherham A

Nomads B 2 4 Rotherham A
Ian Barwick (w) 1/2 1/2 Chris Williams
Ken Dewhurst 1/2 1/2 Pete Ballard
Lucas Roshani 0 1 Ed Sowerby
Steve Withington 1/2 1/2 Chris Willey
Les Day 1/2 1/2 Phil Sharp
Eric McKenna 0 1 Mick Snowdon

Usual captain Keith was playing for the A team in Barnsley, so Steve stood in.

First to finish was Les, with a short brutal game that ended in a draw. Meanwhile Steve allowed Chris an early threat of checkmate that could only be stopped by giving up a bishop. This, however, was met shortly after with a nice counter-blunder from Chris, and a draw was agreed in a game both players would rather forget. New Nomad Lucas crumbled early and things weren’t looking good. A draw on board two and defeat for Eric meant Nomads had lost the match.

Ian was last to finish with an interesting queens and pawns endgame from which he secured a draw.
