Four Nations Chess League Rounds 1 & 2

(See also photographs on separate page>)

 

The first two rounds of the Four Nations Chess League (4NCL) took place over the weekend of 11th & 12th November 2017, with divisions 1 & 2 playing in Telford, 3 & 4 in Reading, and division 3N in Doncaster.

 

Yorkshire-based teams participating are White Rose 1, White Rose 2, Jorvik, and Bradford DCA Knights A, B and C.  The White Rose players are a little over 50% Yorkshire-resident players, with some obvious “guests’”.  Jorvik players are all York league players.  The Bradford DCA players are drawn from Halifax to Hull, and from York to Doncaster, so these three teams could be thought of as “White Rose” 3, 4 and 5 as regards make-up.  Results in these teams’ matches are given below.

 

The Bradford DCA teams experienced a setback when Arron Barker was called away due to a family member going into hospital, leading to a defaulted game (no reserve) and further deduction of a game point as a penalty.

 

The captain of the “Castleford Roses” team (previously called “Castleford Tigers” – but not the rugby team), who is also mother of one of the team, lives in Castleford, West Yorkshire, but the players are mainly resident in Slovakia, so maybe it should be the 5NCL!

 

Other Yorkshire-related players appearing in other teams, as listed below, included a filler-in for Shropshire who were a player short.
