Meir Chess Club Win Under 130 Trophy

Great excitement at The British Legion Club as Meir Chess Club take on Stafford in the Final of the Under 130 Trophy.
Despite being heavily out graded on Boards 2 and 5 both Peter Windows and Eddie Burke were able to achieve creditable draws.
On Board 1 Clive Ferry managed Meir's only but, in the final analysis ,crucial win!
Two Boards were still playing up to the wire. Tom Healey also drew on Board 3 but Dave Fuller, after an heroic battle, went down on Board 4.

The final result was a 2.5 / 2.5 Draw over the boards but the win on top board sealed the victory and  the Under 130 Cup for Meir.
