Durham League Division 2

South Shields v Hartlepool

1. Brian Towers 1-0 Bernie Price
2. Dave Patterson 1-0 Dave Lowcock
3. Eddie Czestochowski ½-½ Dave Smith
4. Chris Sayers 1-0 Mark Priest
5. Alan Blackburn ½-½ Eddie Glass

A South Shields 4 -1 Win now sets up an interesting situation in their next game. A Win would be needed against Hetton Lyons 2 in order to swop positions with them and finish in the top 5 of the Division . That would then mean they then play all those top 4 teams again in the second part of the season.

Mid Season Report December 2015

Half way through the 2015/16 Season . South Shields are holding their own in the top two Northumberland Leagues .

South Shields A Team are in third place in the Northumberland 1st Division , however they hold a game in hand over the current top team Gosforth Empire and have yet to play against this formidable team .

South Shields B Team are currently Joint top of Division 2 with Leam Comets but have a game in hand .  It is going to be an exciting run-in  particularly as South Shields B last game this season will pitch these two teams together.

South Shields C are currently Joint Bottom of Division 3 , but have a great chance to pull further up the table as they now re-engage each of the teams they have played the season in the reverse fixture .

South Shields are also fielding a team in the Second Division of the Durham League and although they are second bottom there is not much of a points spread between the top and bottom , and we are hopeful of a better second half to the Season ,

South Shields Teams  currently hold first and second place in the Ron Evers Rapid Play Event after 2 rounds  , all to play for in the subsequent 4 rounds .

There were many good performances in these results  , lets hope we have good fortune in 2016 .






Gosforth Regents 2.5-2.5 South Shields A

Andy Lawson 1-0 John Boyd
Joe Dalton 0-1 Joe Watson
John Wheeler 0-1 Paul Bielby
JoshuA Fernadez ½-½ Simon McGuiness
D Baynes 1-0 Ian Maughan

John Boyd lost on time to Andy Lawson in a queen and pawn endgame . Joe Watson felt a little bored with his position and was considering  an e cigarette but decided to pull off a clever combination instead and won a bishop . Paul Bielby has lost count of the number of times he has played John Wheeler . Paul won a nice rook ending . Simon McGuinness played an unusual variation of the French Defence and was under the cosh before generating activity on both sides of the board . Ian Maughan had an exciting game . In mutual time pressure his opponents bishop pair conjured up too many threats .
