On board 5 I played white, my opponent played ♞xd5?? and I missed the win taking the ♞ with my ♘ as it cannot be retaken due ♕xc7 mate on c7. Instead I played ♖ad1?? and he played ♞xf4+ ♕xf4. Position then equal

I reached this dead drawn rook ending but allowed my opponent to swop off the rook on his second attempt with check. Played the pawn ending badly losing the opposition with a pawn move that lost me stationary moves. Congrats to my young opponent for finding a way to win. But I seem to be playing weaker as I get into bus pass age territory.Quite concerning !

Our 2 wins in the team loss to Fareham A were quite remarkable:
On board 2, Kier beat Tony Corkett, a player outgrading him by 276 points! and,
on board 4, Ed had a great win against Richard Ursell who outgraded him by 97 points.

In the second match, welcome to Terry Martin and Dylan Horner whose wins in their debut matches helped Emsworth to a 4-1 win.
