Yorkshire U18s Team Championship


The third round of the Yorkshire U18s Team Championship was played on 11/02/2024, and the results were loaded onto LMS over this weekend.


Assuming this to have been the final round, it appears that Hull & East Riding A has won Division 1, narrowly edging out Leeds Blues.  There are no publicly available rules, but whilst those two teams have finished on equal match points, Hull & ER A have 5 more game points and also beat Leeds Blues in their individual match, so all the usual methods of resolving ties make Hull & ER A the winners.


Division 2 is clearer cut with Sheffield B finishing 2 match points ahead of the rest of the field and 1 game points ahead of the rest.

Not all teams were able to get in the full potential quota of 6 matches, and an unusual feature was that in Division 2 Leeds Greens and HDCA Meltham Chess Mates played each other twice, as can be seen in the cross-table.
