9 Jan. After this 4th win in 5 games Bournemouth A now lead Div 2 by 3 points. Like last season, Bournemouth A are putting in a strong challenge for promotion. But 4 teams below them have at least a game in hand. Also at Kinson on the same evening, Bournemouth C lost their unbeaten record to Poole C. Though out-graded on each board, the Poole team overcame Dave Lockwood’s loss on board 1 to Simon Errington, to then win on each of the other 3 boards through Matt Austin, Steve Bailey and Paul Trowbridge – so final score 3-1 to the visitors. The match appears to have been played in one of the shortest times on record! Poole Captain Steve Bailey’s prompt text with the result was sent at 9.10pm., which even allowing for the early start, was under 2 hours! In all 5 divisions, Southbourne D, leaders in Div 4 are the last team left unbeaten
