Wimborne B 3.5 Poole B 0.5, B&DCL Div 1; 1st win for Wimborne
7 Mar. A result that will give Wimborne B some confidence they can avoid relegation to B&DCL Div 2. Eric Sachs, who was covering for an unwell Toby Miller, summed it up well: “Home win, well played Wimborne, the result belied their league position”. Wimborne B are now equal 5th with Southbourne A who have a match in hand, which they play tomorrow evening (Fri) at home to league leaders Poole A.
The excellent Poole website, well known for a welcome touch of humour amidst the serious business of league chess, makes this comment on their 3 tough away games this week “All support and spectators are welcome, no tickets are needed, no crowd segregation, both standing and seating permitted and entry is free”.
