Well this was a strange match with both teams needing to win by a huge margin to have any real hope of lifting the title, the win much more desperate for ourselves as Telepost had points on the board already and we needed to win to overhaul them and hope for a result in the other remaining match. When I arrived I was surprized to see everyone ready for action , I had to double check I wasn't late but no just everyone was super keen. Well in a most bizarre game my game was wrapped up in the hour . My opponent had played strangely aggressive and got caught with a plan not terminal but a rook down and a very awkward posistion meant he decided to resign very early. Glyn was playing white side of a classical french defence and not alot else was going on of any note. When I next viewed the boards the match had almost taken a definetive situation.  Adrian looked drawn on 1 but tricky, Glyn was slightly worse on 2 and was probably going to lose , steve on 4 was the reverse slightly better and things looked terminal for Munroe that was heading to an unsatisfactory drawn match which would have delighted the 2 interlopers from Newport that had come to spy on proceedings. As the play continued it was going too forecast Glyn lost then Munroe , unexpectedly Adrian too missed something and went on to lose and the match was gone 3-1 suddenly 4-1 to them might make the newport match interesting however Steve won and made it a 3-2 defeat and realistically gifted Newport the title if they complete a victory against Church stretton.

In hindsight not a bad title defence but ultimately missed oppurtunities not taken have cost us, I myslef guilty of failing to win 2 games from winning posistions and the terrible loss that was in a key match.
