Poole B 3 Poole A 1, B&DCL Div 1; League opens up, Poole club’s strength in depth

4 Jan. Poole B’s fine win makes Div 1 more competitive and now 3 teams, including Poole B themselves, have Championship aspirations. 2 of the games were drawn but wins by Ciprian Stanciu on board 1 and Toby Miller on board 4 ensured victory. And Southbourne B will join them if they can beat their A team this evening (Friday 5 Jan). But Poole A are still in prime position leading the Division by 1 league point. All credit to Poole; the result emphasises the club’s considerable strength in depth
