Poole F 1.5 Southbourne E 2.5, B&DCL Div 5; Southbourne new leaders
5 Mar. Poole F put up a brave fight in this match, only losing narrowly, especially as they were out graded by more than 20 points a board. Paul Sandy and Chris Lane won for Southbourne, but Poole’s Matt Austin overcame a grading difference with his opponent of 45 points to win. But well done to Southbourne E who are one of 3 teams who may emerge as Champions in a really exciting finish to Division 5. The other teams are Bournemouth C & Purbeck, and they have to meet on 1 May at Kinson.
