Southbourne win 5th Team Battle
In the absence of Wimborne it was a slightly reduced field of 5 teams but nonetheless some interesting chess was played and there was a good battle for the top spot.
It was a very close run affair with Southbourne, who fielded eight players, edging Poole out. Southbourne’s top scorer was Jamie Doyle who has previously played for Poole, so things could easily have been very different.
Ringwood came a clear third with only three players, in an echo of the first team battle held at the beginning of of June.
