Despite the ‘B’ team having promising positions on at least 4 boards, a series of last-minute slip-ups ensured that the ‘A’ Team won 6-0 in tonight’s Glasgow League Div. 2 fixture.

Chris on board 1 and Steven on board 6 achieved won positions against their higher-graded opponents, and Jim Mearns on board 3 and your humble Webmaster on board 4 held even positions for much of their respective games, but eventually bad luck and/or bad nerves conspired to cause a wipe-out at the end of the night.

Full results are as follows:

Board Glasgow Montrose ‘B’ 0 6 Glasgow Montrose ‘A’
1 Chris Perkin (1526) W 0 1 B Ed Ferry (1954)
2 Jim Murray (1467) B 0 1 W Sam Collins (1789)
3 Jim Mearns (1390) W 0 1 B Norman Lindsay (1751)
