As ever, another hard-fought match in this competitive division. The team played well but on the night Prescot were just too solid.

My own game against Mike Delaney went badly wrong in the early middle game and although I played on for some time the outcome was never really in doubt.

I didn’t really see any of the other games but Mark Wadsworth also went down. Luke thought Mark had a promising position at one time but somewhere along the line Dave Owens, who is very resilient, found enough to get the win.

The rest of the games were all drawn. Tom Webb said afterwards that he was clearly worse when Joe Butterworth offered the draw to secure the match. Tom would always play on if he had anything of a sniff but he said that there was simply nothing there and his position was such that he could have almost resigned anyway.

Luke felt that he played a ‘little loose’ and got into some difficulties but managed to hold out for the half-point.

Howard Sleeman had the better position in his game at the end but ran out of time so the draw was his only real option.

Mike Williams and Kevin Sartain slugged it out to the end but, again, finished honours even.

Prescot were better than us on the night but it was a good effort by Atticus 3 nonetheless.

Jim Wiseman (Captain)
