Pennine Cup 2023-24 – Entries, Latest


Damien McElvenny has circulated a further-revised list of teams entered for this event being held on 14th January in Swinton, Manchester.


The Wirral team now hangs more appropriately on Merseyside as opposed to Cheshire & NW.  Meanwhile two Cheshire & NW teams, as such,

 have been added, which is the main point.  This brings the total number of teams up to 16.

Damien says, “Please could I have player listings (and team captains’ contact details) by end of December (which means we'll be using the Dec 2023 ratings for board order).  I think we can allow 100-point leeway in board orders for successive boards.  If you are struggling to assign a rating, please let me know and I'll ask the arbiter to provide one.”
