The 3rd place play-off was also the decider for the Club Shield (awarded to the under-120 graded player with the best result in the club championship). In the game, Mark showed that he knew how to handle Brian's Grob Attack and a well-timed attack by the central pawns led to a decisive material advantage.
The top 3 in the club shield were:
|1st||Mark Johnson (49)|
|2nd||Brian Remmer (109)|
|3rd||John Duff-Cole (90)|
