This season, Crowthorne entered a team in the 4NCL (4 Nations Chess League), our first entry into this competition.
With weekend three just finished, we are just over halfway through the season. Crowthorne is vying for promotion and we are currently well-placed with 10 match points, just one point behind the leaders Oxford 3 and CSC 2. The 4NCL gives an excellent opportunity for juniors to play “serious” chess, and James Love and/or Andrew Kirby have played every weekend when available. Our star performer to date is Peter Tart, with a remarkable 5.5/6!
Here is the Division 4 South table after Weekend Three – just click the match in the crosstable to see the individual results.
