More good news as well - Solihull appear to have "slipped up" against Leamington and lost one of their games in hand. The league table can be viewed here: http://www.oxfordfusion.com/oca/GenerateTable.cfm?LeagueID=83&Org=2
To cap off a long night, here's my game. A reasonable effort ending in a draw. I seem to keep getting the move order wrong regarding my opening strategy but they always transpose into more mainline theory before eventually drifting off. I need to study the black side of the English opening a little more. I kind of know what I am supposed to be doing but am not quite going about it in the right manner!
