Barking’s task, already difficult, was rendered harder when they had to default bottom board. Barking did have a spare man, Mohammed Ishtiaq Ali, alas not eligible for the Knockout tonight but who played two separately rated games under match conditions against the Wanstead board 5.

Barking had just the one spark of light when Ian overstepped the time limit in a position the postmortem suggested would have produced a draw. Ian turned the tables in R2 when Anup dropped his Queen to a discovery after just nine moves.

WANSTEAD A go into the only contested fixture of Round 2 where they await the winners of CHELMSFORD v Loughton. Barking B go into the Plate where they await the losers of the same fixture.
