Congratulations to Morecambe 2 on winning the Division B title. A win for Lytham 2 would have given them the title so all depended on this match.
Sean Parker was first to finish and scored the crucial win for Morecambe in an endgame where he converted his extra pawn advantage. I had a space advantage against Alan but he defended solidly and, after the exchange of queens, may have had winning chances when a draw was agreed in an ending with 2 knights each and equal pawns. Dave went on a dangerous against Nick, who castled queenside, replying with a strong counter-attack against Dave's king. Dave was relieved to escape with a draw after Nick missed a strong queen check in a complex position. Lynne won a pawn and had some winning chances against Andy before conceding the draw in an opposite-coloured bishops ending.
