The penultimate ‘A’ team report comes courtesy of Robin Templeton:

Betwixt cup and lip

Montrose A managed to stumble their way to the Div 2 title with a 3 – 3 draw. David had a quick crush and Norman drew fairly quickly. Sam and I managed to chuck pieces in the opening. Bahlool took his time to win for a change simplifying to a winning endgame. It all came down to the last game. The tension was rising. Beni was two pawns down when his opponent took off the rooks to leaving an opposite colour bishop ending which he could not win as the position became blocked. Game and match all square. Dalmuir put up a good fight.
