Intro Cup – 18.3.15

The final match of the season saw Sidcup at home to Gravesend.

Phil Broughton (51) played very well to beat a higher rated player in Alan Evans (87). This was followed by a win for Andrew Parkin (50) with a nice rook sacrifice to force mate against another higher rated player Paul Loasby (76).

Sarah Walker-Buckton (98) fought a long nail-biting game against Bernard Lis (89) but was checkmated in a close finish. With the score at 2-1 David Helps (138) was playing a very evenly balanced game against John Fowers (115). With not much time left on the clocks, they were down to pawns and kings. David got himself one move ahead and rounded off a fine 3-1 win for the team.

It has been a good season for the Intro team having achieved 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats from all their matches.
