It has been a tough week for Cumnor 2’s chess team as they took on both Cowley 5 and Wantage 2 in the space of five days.
They took on Cowley 5 last Thursday, it was a close game however Cowley 5 ran out 4-2 winners.
Congratulations to Richard and Alan who both won their games. It was Alan’s first win for the team, but it was Richard’s game on board 1 that we can take a look at below.
Another closely fought match was played the following Tuesday at Wantage vs their 2nd team. Richard won his second game along with Steve, and Robert picked up half a point on board 5 against Ray Cordon.
Nevertheless, Wantage won on the other three boards and won the match 3.5-2.5.
