For the Withnall trophy, clubs from the north were paired (at random), against clubs from the south.  When there were no clubs remaining in one group, any remaining clubs were paired against each other.  For the other cups, pairings were drawn at random from all clubs taking part in each event.

Match report by Paul Clapham:
Newcastle chess club welcomed Warley Quinborne for the quarter final of the Withnall Cup. The match shared facilities at Newcastle Bridge Club with the Newcastle Mini-Congress organised by Martyn Harris, making for a warm, friendly atmosphere.

John Pakeman won the toss for Warley Quinborne who played white on the odd boards. The match was tied at 2½ to 2½ with Warley Quinborne winning on board count. All the best to John and his team in the semis.
