'C' team edged out by Todmorden

Today I bring you the final round up from a busy schedule of League fixtures last week. First of all, ‘C’ team Captain, Pete Rawlings, gives us his assessment of his side’s match against Todmorden ‘B’.

Pete Rawlings: did not go to
Khanty-Mansiysk on his holidays! 
The ‘C’ team captain-manager was in foreign parts (rumours that he was helping the English men’s team prepare for the Chess Olympiad in Siberia are greatly exaggerated! – Intermezzo) for the opening match of the season, at home to the newly-formed Todmorden ‘B’, hence, this match report is very late. In his absence, the team shed a player somehow, so everyone that did play had to move up one board. The final outcome was a 2-3 defeat which, in the circumstances, wasn’t too bad. Dave Sugden and Steve Priest won the points.

A full strength team lines up on the 27th of September away to Wheatley, wherever that is (as everyone asks).

Thanks to Pete for going above and beyond the call of duty to bring us that report from his pool-side sun lounger. Good luck to the ‘C’ team tonight as they return to action tonight against Wheatley (wherever that is!) Below is the match card from last week:

Hebden Bridge ‘C’ – Todmorden ‘C’
D.Sugden 1 – 0 L.Innes
J.Blinkhorn 0 – 1 D.Innes
S.Priest 1 – 0 P.Logan
N.Bamford 0 – 1 G.Bowker
P.Dearden 0 -1 J.P. Ellis
2 – 3

This just leaves me with the task of providing readers with the match card for what turned out to be a very difficult night for the ‘D’ team away to Huddersfield ‘B’ last Thursday.

Huddersfield ‘B’ – Hebden Bridge ‘D’
C.Stratford 1 – 0 D.Pugh
S.Oliver 1 – 0 D.Crampton
E.Mellor 1 – 0 J.Todd
J.Hughes 1 – 0 B.Fearnley
D.Tyfa 1 – 0 DEFAULT
5 – 0

The ‘D’ team are away again this evening against Todmorden ‘C’. Fingers crossed that they can get off the mark in that fixture.
