4NCL On Line League Season 3, Finals
The final round of each of the top six Divisions of the current season of the on-line 4NCL (senior) league were played on Tuesday 18/05/2021, with two Yorkshire-based teams were involved. Both matches involved London-based opponents for the Yorkshire-based teams.
In the Division 5 final, Chessable White Rose 3 were somewhat outrated, and did indeed lose 1-3 to London-based Charlton Cobras A. (The Charlton second board’s name is recognisable as that of a former Thames Valley police officer who was one of the two leading contenders for the British Police Chess Championship around the late 1980s and/or early 1990s-memory fails-when the webmaster was involved in controlling that event, at first in South Yorkshire police’s sports and social club in Sheffield, named “Niagara” supposedly as a humorous reference to a small weir in the River Don which skirts its playing fields, and once at Wanstead police training college. The other leading contender at the time was Alan Grant, then of Glasgow police.)
In the Division 2 final, Hull & Beverley Romans 1 were only narrowly outrated, and rose to the occasion with a 2˝-1˝ victory over Catford Cosmonauts 2.
Match result details of the two Yorkshire-based teams were as follows:
