Bad Weekend At The Office For Petru

Petru was playing for Cheddleton in Div 3 North of the 4NCL this weekend but, unfortunately, was beaten in both of his games.

Grenville Makes County Debut

Grenville made a winning  debut for the Staffs U140 team against Leicestershire yesterday, playing on board 11 and beating a player graded slightly higher than himself. Unfortunately it was not enough to prevent Staffs from going down to a very narrow 8.5 - 7.5 defeat. Click here for the match score card.

'B' Team Still Pointless

The 'B' team suffered their 3rd successive loss last night, going down by 3-2 against Cheddleton 'B'. A win for me on board 4, plus draws for Max and Derek on boards 3 and 5, were offset by losses for Petru and Kas on boards 1 and 2. Click here for the match score card.

Fenton Rapidplay Championship

I've had second thoughts about the Rapidplay Championship and decided that we WILL play it after all. We have a free Monday on 12th November so we will hold it then. It will be a 5 round Swiss competition with 15 minutes each on the clock, and a play-off on the night if it ends in a tie. I have asked Alberto Gissi of Newcastle to sct as Tournament Controller.

MCCU U140 County Championship

Max and I both played for the Staffs U140 team yesterday in their opening MCCU County Championship match. However, we were unable to prevent the team going down by 9.5 - 6.5 against a much stronger Warwickshire team, with both of our games being drawn. Click here for the match score card. If anybody is vaguely interested they can view my game here.

Club Rapidplay Championship

Hardly anybody has replied regarding the proposed Club Rapidplay Championship on Sunday 18th November. Consequently I have decided not to run it this year.

Club Championship Play-Off

Max and Petru will play-off for the Club Championship on Monday evening. If the game ends in a draw then a second play-off game will be held on Monday 12th November with colours reversed.
