NCCU U-120: Merseyside v Yorkshire

 

This season’s county matches kicked off for Yorkshire on Sunday 11/11/2018, with Yorkshire playing away to Merseyside in the NCCU U-120 competition, at Bury Bridge Club, The Art Gallery, Moss Street, Bury, BL9 0DF.

 

The time control was 42 moves in 1¾ hours, with a further 15 minutes added for the remainder of the game.  The teams were almost perfectly balanced as regards grades, but Merseyside’s chances were compromised by them being a player short.  Yorkshire managed 6½ to 4½ on the remaining boards, making the final score 7½‑4½ in favour of Yorkshire.
