B team pipped at post by Ludlow

The B team lost narrowly to Ludlow last week with the match decided on the top board. David Williams resigned against Ludlow's John Whittaker in a position that John still felt had some play, but David's attack had petered out and he was going a piece down for a couple of pawns. Francis Rooney won in a rook and pawn ending by constructing a cheaky mating trap and Chris Pimm Jones and Adrian Thorpe both drew.

Ludlow a 3-2 Church Stretton B
J Whittaker 1-0 D Williams
R Woodley 0-5-0.5 A thorpe
J Preece 1-0 T Williamson
P Munday 0.5-0.5 C Pimm Jones
K Thompson 0-1 F Rooney
