Five hard fought games. Board 3 was first to finish when the position became completely blocked. Board 4 started off promising fireworks with a gambit, but also fizzled out to a draw. Board 1 was next to finish, white after getting the better of the opening then played a couple of loose moves allowing black back into the game, but still even. Board 5 was next to finish and an exciting one to watch with plenty of tactics. Black sacrificed a rook for perpetual check, then pieces came off to an ending, which possibly could have gone blacks way, but didn't. Board 2 was last to finish. White built up a strong centre, but next time I looked, he was two pawns down! White tried everything but in the end it wasn’t enough. So, Lytham win the match and the league. Congratulations to Lytham.
