'C' Team Return To Form

The 'C' team returned to form last night with a 3-1 win against Kidsgrove, propelling them to joint top of Division 4. However, the other 2 teams level with them, Crewe 'D' and Cheddleton 'E', both have matches in hand so we are unlikely to occupy our lofty position for too long.

Julian had a disappointing game on board 1 against a lower graded opponent but Grenville, Derek and Ernie all had good wins to bring home the bacon.

'A' Team Default Match

Late withdrawals meant that we are unable to raise a team for tomorrow night's Division 1 home match against Holmes Chapel. It is far too late to request a postponement so we have conceded the match.
