I was outplayed, Bernard was up a piece after 8 moves. Howard got a sound draw. John’s result has not yet been agreed -but is a pawn  up with multiple threats. Computer gives Francis 1.3. Stockfish favours a win as does Steve Berry and Francis. John is my player of the year having 8 blacks getting many key wins

Sevenoaks v Hastings

Hastings  travelled to Orpington  to play our semi-final match in the Stevenson cup in the Kent league   because of the nonavailability of players we went with a weakened team  and for the first two hours it looks as if we’re going to pull  of a good result with Derek Harvey winning relatively quickly my position looking very good and Paul Kelly’s position looking completely locked it was only required a draw from the remaining boards however their strength eventually told and they came out of 4 1/2 1 1/2 winners

Hastings 2 v brighton 2

Hastings to went into their last division two match against newly promoted Brighton 2 knowing that a draw
would secure promotion to the first division however Brighton had something to play for needing at least a draw to be promoted champions Hastings would also be promoted champions if they could win however for a second season on the trot the second team fell at the final hurdle only being able to produce a modest team due to the unavailability of our stronger players we lost the match 2 3 despite the fact that we are badly upgraded it was a credible performance but as Jim Wheeler said on the day close but no cigar in truth we really lost the chance of promotion when we lost to relegation candidates Eastboune

3 – Stevenson Cup

Hastings travelled  to the weald of Kent  for our last Stevenson cup match knowing that a draw  would be sufficient for us to make the semi-final the weald of Kent although badly out graded   put  up  stiff resistance  and we only managed to draw  the match however this was sufficient  and we now play  Sevenoaks in the semi-final

Hastings v Crowborough

after our defeat against Eastbourne require a good result  against Crowborough to keep our promotion chances alive as you can see this was an excellent result  and in all probability we now only require a draw  against Brighton 2  get promotion

eastbourne v Hastings

Hastings travelled from relegation candidates Eastbourne knowing  that two wins the next two games  would guarantee promotion however things did not go our way and although there is one game outstanding the likely result will be  3  2 to Eastbourne this means that we now need a good result against Crowborough in our next match  of victory of more than 3 1/2  1 1/2 to get our promotion challenge back on track this would mean  in all likelihood it will only need a draw  in our last match against Brighton
