(I'm not sure who was captain of Dunfermline B.)


Two good wins for Dunfermline. Curiously, all five of the A team games
finished before any of the games in the other match. Game of the night
was probably the Brisbane-Kirkpatrick clash which was a very sharp and
interesting affair. Other watchable games included Leckie-Horne (where
Peter did well to survive some sustained pressure) and Ossowski-Manson
(last game to finish, with Fred finding a very nice mating attack). By
contrast, the Hewitt-Black encounter was 17 moves of very drawish
stuff, with the handshake coming before 8pm. Special mention should be
made of Matt Harris's win in what I believe was his first competitive
