Colchester B finish 2nd in Division 2

Colchester B won their last two matches to move ahead of teams from Chelmsford and Maldon and finish in 2nd place in NECL Division 2 (the A team have one match left but the B team's results mean that they are now guaranteed to finish in 1st place).

The team beat Witham B 3.5-0.5 and followed this with a 2.5-15 win against Maldon B - both these results were better than the results obtained by the A team against these teams! Felix Schnell made his Colchester debut in the match against Maldon. In the Maldon B match Phil drew quickly, Svein's opponent claimed a draw by repetition soon after the opening, Felix's game was quite sharp and had plenty of opportunities for both sides to go wrong - eventually finishing in a repetition, Nathan won after a long same-colour bishop endgame.
