Unfortunately we lost our game against Edinburgh University 2. The final result was 4-2.  This means that we will finish 4th in the league and will not be promoted.

However we did have a small gem played by Indrek who had a fun game playing the von Hennig-Schara Gambit – see the club’s Facebook page for the game!

Full result:
McGillivray 0.5-0.5 Donitova
Reiland 1-0 Hand
Brejter 0-1 Angeletos Chrysaitis
Whittaker 0.5-0.5 Lyakh
Armitage 0-1 Bao
Platts 0-1 Knak

We won our match against Bank of Scotland 2 Thursday night 5 – 1, This means that we still have a chance of being promoted to Division 1 and, possibly, even winning Division 2 this year. We will need a win in our next match in order to do that!

McGillivray 0.5-0.5 Stewart
Reiland 1-0 Russell
Brejter 1-0 Forbes
Whittaker 0.5-0.5 Murray

Robertson 1-0 Powell

[Report by Calum McGillivray, team captain]

The club had a full house the previous week when both the fourth and fifth teams were playing at home in Division 2 of the Edinburgh League.

Edinburgh 4

Edinburgh 4 were playing Musselburgh 1 and, whilst top and bottom boards lost, the middle order eventually pulling through to just come ahead scoring 3.5 to 2.5.  This result placed Edinburgh 4 on top of Musselburgh in the division – with both having 9 match points yet Edinburgh 4 is ahead by 25 v 23 on board points!

Edinburgh 5

A strong Corstorphine 1 only just managed an away win against an outgraded Edinburgh 5 with a score of 3.5 to 2.5.  Paul Robertson held Chris Sykes to a draw on top board despite a grading difference of 326 points …..
