Wimborne C 1.5 Bournemouth A 2.5, B&DCL Div 2; Bournemouth keep alive promotion hopes

11 Apr. With this narrow win Bournemouth A still have a chance of promotion with 1 match to go, but Wimborne C needed to win to keep the pressure on leaders Highcliffe A. The teams were fairly evenly matched on grades, but Paul Errington (Bournemouth) did very well to overcome a 14 grading points difference to beat in-form Alan Tyler. The other Bournemouth win came from Tony Lima on board 1. Jorgen Nielsen won on board 2 for Wimborne. Colin Wilson (Wimborne) and John Oldfield drew. It all goes down to the last matches of the season and a victory for Highcliffe away to New Milton would  ensure they are promoted to Division 1. Well done to all the teams in Div 2 for being so competitive and making it exciting throughout and until the last round
