A team lose at Coddon

Coddon A managed to squeeze out a victory against Church Stretton A when the final two games went 1.5-0.5 in the home team's favour. Gerald Link won the tactical battle in his game against Gary White and Graham Shepherd agreed a draw against Andy Tunks after he had serious pressure but no obvious way to convert it into a win. John Whittaker was undone by some aggressive play by John Tunks, and Francis Rooney had a sound drawing position against fellow junior Nathanael Paul but overpressed and lost the point. Steve Rooney needed a win on board one to get the draw but despite turning down an earlier draw had to concede the half point with both players short of time in a B v N ending.

Coddon A 3-2 Church Stretton A
G Pugh 0.5-0.5 S Rooney
G White 0-1 G Link
A Tunks 0.5-0.5 G Shepherd
J Tunks 1-0 J Whittaker
N Paul 1-0 F Rooney
