Mid Sussex league

Bexhill 3 flying high!

On Friday 28th February Bexhill 3 travelled to Horsham to take on their 4th team in Division 3 of the Mid Sussex League.

We were hoping to maintain our 100% record in the Division, and, I am pleased to say, we did with a resounding 4 to 0 win.

Steve Merchant, was first to finish on board 3, when he comprehensively out played his opponent in the  endgame.

Bill Luxton on board 1 continued his outstanding season for the 3rd team by checkmating his opponent for his 6th win from 7 games

Derek Cosens on board 4 found an excellent tactic that won a Bishop, and he maintained his lead into the endgame and forced a resignation from his opponent.

On board 2 I, like Derek, found a tactic to win a Bishop and also maintained this advantage into the endgame and eventually my opponent resigned.

We now have 2 league matches and one more win will secure the top spot.
