Siesta correspondence game by Richard Callaghan

I'm trying to find a correspondence game by a past friend of mine, IM Richard Callaghan where he played the Siesta variation as Black.  I'm positive this was available when I had ChessBaseLight2009 but that is now defunct, and when I look at the current online incarnation of ChessBase, I cannot find it.

If it helps, I believe that the game began 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 d6 5.c3 f5 6.exf5 Bxf5 7.d4 e4 8.Ng5 Be7!? (Tim Taylor is wrong in his "Slay the Spanish" book -- this move seems perfectly playable.  He only gives 9.O-O Bxg5? when 9...b5! seems satisfactory)

Thanks in advance to anybody that has access to other resources than I do
