Holywell Knights v Rhyl & Prestatyn 2, Monday 10th September, 2018
RESULT Holywell Knights (3), Rhyl & Prestatyn 2 (1)
  1. Dewi Jones 0.5 - Chris Grier 0.5
  2. Stephen Williams 1 – Andrew Hughes 0
  3. Paul Taylor 1 – James Babington 0
  4. Richard Drew 0.5 - Diego Garcia Lucas 0.5
Richard: “I was at the point of resignation in my game, being a couple of pawns adrift but fought on and secured a draw, recalling how to play with the ‘opposition’ in the end game, thanks to Dewi’s training.
Steve did well to beat Andrew Hughes, after Andrew inadvertently game up a piece. The game was won on time, but Steve was well ahead at this point
I didn’t see anything of Paul’s game but he did well to beat a higher graded player in James Babington and Dewi and Chris Grier seemed to have an even game throughout, so a draw was probably the right result.”
