Yorkshire won the toss for colours and chose to have white on the even numbered boards.

 

Yorkshire started this fixture knowing that 2½ game points would secure a place in the English Chess Federation Counties Knock‑Out competition and 4½ game points would secure the Northern Counties Chess Union County Championship title at Under 140 grade level.  Having regard to the grading strength of each team, I anticipated a close match.  This proved overly optimistic.  Lancashire relentlessly increased their lead throughout proceedings and when my opponent offered a draw, I decided to check the score. We were losing by a 7½ - 1½ margin!  Fortunately, Sai Chinmayee Kumaar secured a draw before I returned to my board. Despite the belief that my position offered good winning chances, I accepted the offer, ensuring a qualifying place in the English Chess Federation Knock Out stages.  Stephen Lee then eked out a win to give the result a veneer of respectability.  Nevertheless, the Yorkshire Under 140 grade team won the national title last season from the second qualifying position, so all is not lost.  Matches now become 16 board affairs.
