ECF County Championship Quarter-Finals

 

Eight -final matches were played at various locations, mainly mid-points between the counties concerned, over the weekend: seven on Saturday 14/05/2022, and one on Sunday 15/05/2022.  Yorkshire was involved in three of these.

 

The Open team, captained by Peter Ackley with Steve Westmoreland acting as captain at the event, though not particularly strong by some standards, was surprisingly way too strong for a Middlesex Open team of whose players only three were barred by their ratings from the lower U-2050 section.  Middlesex managed a win on only 1 board.  Yorkshire is now due to meet Greater Manchester in the semi-finals on the 11th or 12th of June.  See below for match details. See here for photos from the match by David Mills.

 

The U-1850 team, captained by Rupert Jones, comfortably beat Norfolk, playing on a slightly reduced number of boards.  Norfolk managed to win on three boards, but Yorkshire won on seven.  Yorkshire is now due to meet Essex in the semi-finals on the 11th or 12th of June.  See below for match details.

 

The U-1450 team, captained by Steve Westmoreland, did not manage to emulate the successes of the other two teams, losing to Essex.  Nevertheless, this provided good experience of adult national county chess for juniors who made up half the team.  Better luck next year!  See below for match details, and photos by Steve Westmoreland. Also see here for here for more photos from the match, by David Mills.

 

The U-2050 team is due to play its quarter-final match against Essex on 21/05/2022, while the U-1650 team has a bye straight through to the semi-finals.
