Wimborne B 1.5 Southbourne B 2.5, B&DCL Div 1; teams bring season to a close in both B&DCL & County

30 May. It was a close result with Mark Littleton (Wimborne) continuing his fine run of form with a win on board 1. But the foundation to the Southbourne victory was success on boards 2 & 3 for Bruce Jenks and Grzegorz Sawicki respectively. Colin Wilson (Wimborne) and Brian Curran drew on 4. It finished an excellent season for Southbourne B, who came equal on league points with Wimborne A, although the latter had the better game points and they were just 1 point off champions Poole A. There were times during the season when they looked as if they could win Div 1.

All credit to Wimborne B who, though relegated, played with much spirit in their final matches, especially in their previous encounter away to champions Poole A, which they came close to winning.

It has been a really good season in the 5 divisions of the B&DCL and 3 County. Poole were exceptional in winning 4 divisions and the Team Handicap Cup, but they were pushed all the way in each competition. So very competitive and also exciting with no team running away with their division. Well done to every team who took part to make it a memorable season
