Southbourne A 3.5 Wimborne B 0.5, B&DCL Div 1; Southbourne win again, but Wimborne relegated

Bournemouth & District Chess League

11 May. Southbourne Captain Martin Simons reported “a competitive match, closer than the score suggests”.

His interesting and comprehensive report appears on LMS: and is well worth a read

Meanwhile, the loss confirms Wimborne B are relegated to Div 2 next season, where they seem certain to be one of the frontrunners. Southbourne A are experiencing a season of 2 halves, but have now won 4 matches in a row and temporarily head the table on games points. As Martin jokingly commented when submitting the result “We would like the league to stop here”. The amazing closeness of Div 1 this season is evidenced that currently only 2 points separate the top 5 teams
