SCL Fareham C Fixtures and Results 2015-16

Thursday, October 01, 2015 Ringwood C Fareham C

Malcolm Day 1 Stephen Nelson-Smith 0

Darrell Sturmey 0 Rob Davies 1

Mike Thomas 0 Dave Anderson 1

Gavin Stonham 1 Jim Craig 0


Four interesting games where our two victories by Dave Anderson & Rob Davies both came from Queen captures, Stephen Nelson-Smith felt he had a slight edge early on but unfortunately it was not enough & his opponent turned the tables. Meanwhile Jim Craig failed to stop a mating attack by his opponent's two rooks & a bishop.

Jim Craig 1 Michael Henbury 0

Adrian Krajewski 0 Rob Sims 1

Andrew Thomas 0 Keven Lamb 1

Stuart Johnson 0 Rob Strachan 1


For Andrew & Stuart this was the first ever game representing Fareham. Unfortunately both lost this time but hopefully will build on this for a better outcome in later representative games.
Adrian also lost -- he told me he made a mistake which, in effect decided his game.
Jim who only stood in on Board 1 when  the selected player didn't turn up was in a real uphill struggle in his game but with only King & Rook left at end against overwhelming material gained a win on time.

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 Fareham C Salisbury C

Les Springthorpe 0 Tomas Rosin 1

Brian Massey 0 Chris Kenward 1

Jia Feng Ralph Lever  0

Stuart Johnson 0 Mark Barrett 1


Once again Jia won & saved us from a whitewash -- this time against an opponent with a grade of 90. From the little that I saw, she was comfortably ahead throughout  the whole game. Unfortunately, Stuart (who stood in on Board 4) had his Q captured very soon & then quickly lost.

Meanwhile, Les & Brian lasted a bit a bit longer but the match was all over at 9:15pm!

Ken Moore 1 Chas Chapman 0

Richard Slade 1 Alan Butler 0

David Green Rob Davies

Andrew Habbitts 1 Andrew Thomas 0


It was hoped with a relatively stronger team, that the SCL C League team would gain it's first win after one draw & two losses but instead we had our worst result so far. While the team captain managed to scramble a draw in an even game, on the other three boards our opponents were ahead on material which they consolidated into wins.

Mohit Gupta 1 Chas Chapman 0

Peter Wei 0 Rob Davies 1

Nat Brunning 0 Dave Anderson 1

Kai Yuen Weng Jim Craig


At the seventh attempt this season, a C team has actually won a match! - and are no longer in the SCL wooden spoon position.
Rob Davies & Dave Anderson played in this season's first C team match when both won but the team got a draw. Once again in the same team, they both won (Rob thanks to K&Q N fork & Dave  making his additional B tell) and, despite Chas Chapman slipping up against a marauding central P, Jim Craig carried the team over the finishing line by agreeing a draw after missing a win.

Tuesday, January 12, 2016 Fareham C Ringwood C

Alan Butler 0 Michael Jay 1

Andrew Thomas 0 Darrell Sturmey 1

Kalvin White 1 Colin Grant 0

Chris Buck 0 Gavin Stonham 1


The reverse match at Ringwood kicked off the Div 5 season (where we drew 2-2) and this match kicked off the second half of the Div 5 season. Although everyone put up a good fight, Kalvin White on Board 3 was our only winner. By the oddity of how the SCL tables work, Kalvin's game point was sufficient for Fareham to move off the bottom of the Div 5 table!

Jia Feng 1-0 George Dixon

Kalvin White 0-1 Tom Brereton

Andrew Thomas 1-0 Kai Yuen Wong

Brian Massey 0-1 Peter Wei


Not too much to say about this match as hardly saw anything of the games being played. The most interesting aspect was there were wins on all four Boards for the player with the Black pieces! For us, that meant wins for Jia & Andrew on Boards 1 & 3 but losses for Kalvin & Brian on Boards 2 & 4

We paid the penalty of having an away match scheduled the day before Easter as only three members were available to play.

 

Special mention to Les for:-

* Playing in an away match at the age of 85!

* Picked up Kalvin from his care home & then driving to the DoCOC

* Taking Kalvin back home after I dropped them at the DoCOC

* Gaining a draw in his match & saving us from a whitewash defeat
