A report from Alastair Dawson on last night’s Kirkcaldy A-Castlehill B match:
“Your boys [Castlehill B] put in a super performance last night 4-0 [against Kirkcaldy A]. First to finish Robert J after winning a Rook then simplifying. Second Ben against Stuart Blythe – After 1 hour of play Ben asked me what the time control was and if you got extra time at the end!! he was down to his last 13 minutes at that point but 30 mins behind on the clock. But he had everything under control and won nicely with a pretty finish. Then Paul S won a B before coming into the ending and picked off the pawns and an immediate resignation. Last to finish was Euan, this time 20 mins ahead on the clock (at my insistence!). It showed, he relaxed and played a super positional game to finish off Russell Kynoch in a R and P ending. So superb all round – and well worth the trip (I had a wonderful pint of lime and lemonade to pass away the evening while game watching!)”.
