The Division 4 Strong Men

The 'C' team find themselves in what is rapidly becoming their customary position of holding up the Division 4 table. A 3rd loss from our opening 4 matches last night, this time by 3.5 - 0.5 against Newcastle  'D',  leaves us rooted at the bottom of the table. It was only a draw from Ernie 'Endgame' Wilkinson on board 3 that saved us from a whitewash. Click here for the match score card.

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.

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.
