Sunday: Something of a reversal of fortunes compared with the success of the day before – this time, Wessex A, B & C all lost.

In 2B round 4, Wessex A lost to Grantham Sharks (2) by 2.5-5.5. But following promotion they are holding their own well with 2/4 and sit mid-table

Wessex B & C are new teams in 4S. Overnight leaders Wessex B lost 2-4 to Watford 1, their first defeat after 3/3. Wessex C, though out graded on each board gave a good performance and lost narrowly 2-3 with 1 board defaulted by opponents Shropshire 3 (assuming why this the actual score and not 2-4)

Here is the report following Saturday’s play:

Sat 12 Jan ’19: Wessex A 5 World is Best (2) 3 in 2B; in 4S Wessex B win 3rd match in a row, Wessex C win & lose
