Wimborne E 3 Southbourne D 1, B&DCL Div 4; 4 teams challenging for championship, only 2 points apart

26 Apr. Wins from Tim Joyce and Sepp Clarke enabled Wimborne E to pull off this victory against the league leaders. Boards 2 & 3 were drawn. Wimborne were slightly the higher graded team, except on board 4. For the Southbourne team it was a chance lost to pull away at the top, after a highly successful season so far. But now only 2 points separate the top 4 teams, who may each fancy their chances of being champions. Wimborne E are just 1 point off the leaders with a match in hand, but Poole D themselves only trail Southbourne D by 2 points and have 2 matches in hand. Poole D play Highcliffe C this evening (Thurs 26 Apr) at North Road. Just like the 4 other divisions, it is very exciting and seems likely to go down to the last round of matches. If teams finish equal on match points at the top of any division, the championship is decided on highest game points
