Time control: 36 moves in 1½ hours plus 30 minutes.

Hull & D.C.A. had the white pieces on the even-numbered boards.

 

Report by David G. Mills.

 

Considering their proximity, the chess links between Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have been extremely limited. The respective counties are members of different Chess Unions. A few Lincolnshire-based players represent teams in the Yorkshire Saturday League and your reporter is, to the best of my knowledge, the only Yorkshire-based player representing a club in the Lincolnshire League. When the Humber Bridge tolls were reduced by 50% in 2012, I initially joined Barton-Upon-Humber Chess Club, transferring to Appleby-Frodingham Chess Club (Scunthorpe) two years later. During this time my aim has been to facilitate contacts across the Humber. Clubs from Lincolnshire are now invited to participate in the annual Hull & District Chess Association Team Lightning competition. Players from the South Bank have attended coaching sessions in Hull and it is hoped that the fixture contested on 11th November 2017 will be the first in a series of Annual Challenge Matches.

 

William Orr captains the Lincolnshire under-140-grade team in the Midland Counties Chess Union and I have taken a similar role for the Yorkshire under-120-grade and under-140-grade teams in the Northern Counties Chess Union. On that basis, we determined that there would be a grading limit of around 140 for this match. This was deliberately somewhat vague as Hull & District Chess Association (covering the East Riding of Yorkshire) only made English Chess Federation (E.C.F.) membership a requirement of participation in our local competitions at the 2017 Annual General Meeting. Some of the home team players had both an E.C.F. and a Yorkshire Chess Association (Y.C.A.) grade, several had only a Y.C.A. grade and others – mainly juniors – had no grade at all. Consequently, I determined an appropriate board order to the best of my ability.

 

There were a few problems on the day – mainly involving participants being unable to find the venue. I supplied details of directions to both teams, yet several players arrived late and two scheduled to feature in the home team did not attend at all. Fortunately, a couple of reserves were on hand to allow 13 boards to be contested. A pleasing feature was the number of juniors involved, several in the home team playing their first competitive graded games.

 

Some things never change. I lost the toss for choice of colours, allowing Lincolnshire to take white on the odd-numbered boards. The outcome of the match was in doubt throughout the four-hour playing session, with neither team holding a lead of more than one point. Board one was the last to finish, late reserve, Mike Pollard, being faced with the task of trying to win his game against Herman Kok to force a drawn match. Despite his efforts, the task proved too great and when a draw was agreed Lincolnshire ran out winners by a 7 – 6 margin.

 

Both captains were pleased by the level of interest that this fixture generated and are looking to arrange a return match during summer 2018 – possibly at Scunthorpe. By virtue of its location, Hull is unlikely to stage a county match at any level, so Challenge Matches such as these are the next best thing in terms of generating publicity. Yorkshire under-120 and under-140-grade matches within the Northern Counties Chess Union are already being scheduled. The under 120 grade team will face Merseyside over 12 boards at the Bradford Latvian Club on Sunday 18th February 2018, commencing 12.30 PM. Players graded below 120 wishing to be considered for selection are urged to contact me: -
