‘A’ Team captain Robin reports on the 27th October fixture vs. Bearsden A:
Glasgow Montrose A team put up stiff resistance against visitors Bearsden A who were last season’s division one runners up. Out-graded for the second match in a row on 7 of 8 boards a creditable 4-4 draw was the final score. Bearsden took an early point winning on bottom board against new player Babak but Montrose fought back with wins from father and son pairing of Ruairidh and Jonathan. Daniel found Scotland’s Olympiad team number one Andrew Greet too hot to handle. Norman and Bahloul produced creditable draws to bring the score to 3-3. Sam was unfortunate to lose on time before the first time control. This left me for the second match in a row having to win with the last game to finish to square a tie. In the end I mopped up all the pawns to force the concession. 4-4 a wonderful result.

Thanks to ‘A’ Team captain Robin Templeton, who provided the following report covering the ‘A’ Team’s progress during the 2015-16 season:
Glasgow Montrose A team are looking forward to another season in Glasgow Division One. Last season the team performed very well to retain their place.
The opening match away to Phones A was always close but the home team prevailed 5 – 3. A welcome visitor back to Montrose was John Dempsey who played for the US Virgin Islands at the recent Baku Olympiad in Azerbaidjan.
The second match provided Montrose with its biggest win a 6.5 – 1.5 over Giffnock A and gave the team real hope of staying up. A great team performance with 5 wins and three draws to send everyone home happy.
