Cumbria v Greater Manchester, Under-1850


The third match to be played in the Under-1850 section of the NCCU County Championships was played on Saturday the 20th of January at the Bridge Club, 3/5 Chapel Street, Lancaster, LA1 1NZ.  Cumbria lost two players at the last minute and found only one replacement, so started a point down.


Whilst Cumbria had a slight edge rating-wise on the top 2 boards, Greater Manchester outrated Cumbria to a greater or lesser extent on the other boards so that GM seemed likely to win, as indeed they did, the match score being Cumbria 4-8 Gr. Manchester as shown on this website just here, or on the ECF’s LMS just here.
