U-120 County Match, Sunday 11/11/2018


Players are urgently sought for the following fixture:


Merseyside u-120 v Yorkshire u-120

over 12 board boards

on Sunday 11th November 2018. 1.00 PM – 5.00 PM

at Bury Athenaeum Bridge Club, Art Gallery, Moss Street, Bury, BL9 0DF


Yorkshire under-120 captain David Mills writes:


This fixture is now in doubt as I am struggling to field a team.  Only ten people have responded to my messages and I have 5 players for a 12 board match.  I’m willing to include any player graded under 120 ECF.  If the player does not have an ECF grade, I go on the 2018/2019 Yorkshire Chess Yearbook grade and failing that, the last ‘Chessnuts’ grade.  Will anyone interested please contact me.


Best wishes,

David G. Mills.
