A well deserved first victory of the season for Poulton. As the match went on it became clear Poulton were in control despite Preston 2 having promising positions early on in several games. In my game against Simon Rogers I missed a crucial positional move early on and came under the cosh and Simon played very well to press home a winning attack. Peter Jowett managed to beat David Phillips on board one. I don't have much detail, other than Peter saying he thought he played a very good game!
Conor started off alright against Graham Dobson, but it all went downhill after he played two moves in the wrong order and he ended up in a very difficult position from which he could not recover. A similar fate for Peter Thomson against Michael Parker where I looked like Peter had a definite edge, but he missed a check which resulted in him material and the game.
On board four Clifford Rutlidge could not create enough against Peter Garrett in what looked like a slightly better position.
So congratulations to Poulton on a good team performance.
