The Aces are back-to-back Champions

Posted by Checker on March 9, 2011

A closely-fought victory over Newcastle gives Leam Lane Aces the Division 1 title, their fourth in seven years, with a round to spare. Congratulations to International Master Jonathan Hawkins, Nick Tavoularis, Kyril Fomin, Richard Doyle, John Marsh, captain Robert Forsythe and “manager” Alan Young. Such was the brilliance of these gentlemen, so fluently did their pieces harmonise with their pawn structure, that some bloke called Chris Wardle who they dragged off the street to keep board 5 warm could have lost every game he played and they’d still be celebrating the title tonight.
