Just for Pun

After 2 encouraging results against Ballynafeigh 2 and Muldoon's 1, the "white van men" fell down to earth with an almighty bump last night against a team we previously beat 5.5-1.5 ! Meanwhile over at the Pavilion, Kelly's Heroes got a cool reception from NICS.

White Van Men (AKA the A-Team) vs Lindores

A TeamLindores
RAY DEVENNEY 0-1 GABOR HORVATH
SAM FLANAGAN 0-1 CALUM LEITCH
BRUCE MACLEAN 0-1 ROSS HARRIS
JOHN BRYARS 0-1 FRED MACDONALD
WILLIAM STOREY 0-1 SAM MOORE


It was a case of "the moore, the merrier" for Sam on Board 5 as William "The Conqueror" failed to live up to his nickname!

Gabor was "hungary" for victory against Ray, who made a "clerical" error to lose the game!

On Board 3, Sam as vice-captain was forced to put a nought in the results "calum" after his defeat!

'Fred to say John on Board 4 was unable to draw with MacDonald, as he had done before, as the latter withstood deep time trouble to clinch a win!

I was expecting a "loss from Ross" in the last game but he came up, smelling of "rosses" to complete the whitewash!

Oh well, as the song goes, "the only way is up" and at least The A Team gets a long Christmas break to recharge their batteries.

In the meantime, if Siebren, Stephen and Graeme are ready, willing and able to start playing again for us in the New Year, I'd be very happy to hear from you!

NICS vs Kellys Heroes

NICSKelly's Heroes
Mark Newman 1 - 0 David Ruben
Peter May 0 - 1 Neil Green
David Jackson 1 - 0 Bernard Jaffa
Drew Ferguson 0 - 1 Cathal Murphy
Geoff Hindley 0 - 1 Martin Kelly

As Wellington said of Waterloo. This was "a close-run thing", but it put us 6.5 points clear in Division Two.

The match began with a shock result on Board 2, where Neil produced his own "Evergreen" game, a "May jor" upset as previously unbeaten Peter's Bird's (opening) was well and truly "stuffed"!

Civil Service got revenge when Bernard decided to "jack" it in against Jackson, meaning there was not even, for Jaffa, a "haffa" point, despite his recent good form!

Ferguson then "drew" gasps from the audience as he failed to force a perpetual check - he then "drew" sympathy when losing to Cathal, as Drew "blew" it!

Hindley couldn't "handle a" big attack from Kelly against his Caro-Kann, proving his "Caro-Kann can't"!

A full "mark" for Mark on top board didn't prevent his team losing but I hope this doesn't "mark" him for life, as there was, for Newman, no "cardinal" errors (viz. Cardinal Newman-google it!)!

Christmas Bash

Don't forget the Christmas Quiz and social evening at the club on Monday, 22/12/14 at 8pm - if I don't see you there, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
