Battersea 3 captain Tim Wells has accepted a draw in his adjourned game meaning his side have won their division 3 match against Athenaeum.
Tim said: “We had another excellent result last Monday at Athenaeum. We scored 5 points from 9 completed games, once again with a strong performance up and down the order.
“Wins for Tim Valentine (in no time whatsoever), Steve Barry, and Richard Murphy on boards 8 through 10, plus hard-fought draws all against higher-graded opposition for Bill Drennan, Ben, Richard Fries, and Malcolm Dancy secured us the half point.
“There were tough losses for Joe Skielnik and Gary Smith (his first in twelve games).”
Tim’s game was adjourned but today his opponent offered him a draw, which he accepted, leaving the match score 4.5-5.5 to Battersea 3.
Our third team are now sitting pretty third in the table.
