Charnley Cup Final

From our captain of the Stockport League team, John Turner:

Guys,

I am delighted to advise that Holmes Chapel won the Charnley Cup last
night against Stockport Blues. The Blues turned out a fortified team,
as is their wont on these occasions, but we managed a 3-3 draw,
winning on elimination, and thereby avenging¬† last year’s knock out by
the same process. We have done the double in the Stockport League,
Yeeha!

On the night, your skipper won the toss and chose white on odd boards,
a critical factor in winning by elimination, as nobody on either side
won with the Black pieces. Match winner was Bob who splatted Beach’s
pawns and pieces in a welter of checks leading to mate, a joy to
watch, match saver was Ian who finished last, keeping out his opponent
and reaching a drawn bishops of oposite colour ending.

We were outgraded on every board, on average by 16 points, a fine
achievement by all.

Regards from a grateful captain,

John
