Poole D 3 Wimborne E 1, B&DCL Div 4; Very well done to Poole D who win Div 4 and secure 5th trophy for club
24 May. In a close finish to the season Wimborne had needed to win, but it was Poole who secured full points and become champions after an excellent season. Poole winners were Steve Chappell, Richard Smith & Captain Chris Ambrose. Jim Fox won for Wimborne on board 3. Poole D won the Division by 1 point from Southbourne D, who were leaders for much of the season and in 3rd were Wimborne E. Wimborne Captain Phil Wallace, playing on board 2 reflected “I think we would not have won anyway, but I made sure of it by blundering my queen away after 12 moves when in a good position and two pawns up”.
Well done to all the teams in the league for making it so exciting and competitive.
In what must be the most successful season in their history, Poole have won 4 divisions (out of 6 entered) across both County & B&DCL. Plus the Team Handicap KO Cup, also this week. An incredible performance. On behalf of both leagues, congratulations to them on this unprecedented success!
