Ashby 4 Vs HA3
HA3 lost away at Ashby 4 on Thursday. Peter Page's Steinitz Defence failed against my Ruy Lopez as he got his king stuck in the centre. Drew then lost on board 3, but his opponent looked very relieved. Gordon's game went too and fro, but he eventually lost out. Graham U was a pawn up in the late middle game but a few moves further on was a pawn down and was then unable to stop the march of pawns.

On the same night, HA2 were in action against Hinckley. A good result with Richard scoring a draw, in his first league game, against Terry Clay - nice one!
