In the first of a serious of fixture reports, Robin Templeton  describes the 22nd Oct. tussle between the ‘A’ Team and Bellshill ‘A’:
 
After two matches Montrose are the pace setters in division two. A weakened Bellshill A team held their own on the top boards but were unable to contend with Montrose’s strength in depth. Bahloul led the way with a kingside attack. David used his extra pawns to push home the win. Sam picked up a piece and the game. Beni took a grandmaster draw with black in an unbalanced position. Boards one and three finished with opposite coloured bishop endings which were unwinnable.
