MCCU Under 100 Championship

Staffordshire 5½ - 5½ Leicestershire
Match played 18 January 2014 at Bridge Club, Newcastle under Lyme.

On the day, the game finished as a win For Staffs.  Unfortunately, the Staffordshire team were later penalised.  One of the Staffordshire players had an estimated grade, based on recent results, but not an ECF grade.  Players without an ECF grade should be registered with the MCCU by team organisers, before games are played.  Due to a mix up, their name was not submitted.  The Staffs team incurred a 1 point penalty for the unregistered player and the result on that board was reversed.  The actual results will of course go for grading by the ECF.

Staffs incurred a one point penalty.

Nottinghamshire 11 - 1 Staffordshire
Match played 16 November 2013 at Bramcote, Nottingham.

Report by Abby Sergeant
The newly formed under 100 team from Staffordshire were under attack from Nottingham in their match played at Bramcote.  Despite having strong players from Cheddleton, Kidgrove and Fenton, Nottingham proved too much for Staffs.  The last board to finish was one of the highest rankers, but slipped up with a rook mistake.

Accidents along the route made it difficult for players to arrive on time but were quick to deliver against the East midlands nemesis.

I fully appreciate everyone who turned up and gave up a Saturday afternoon for county chess.  It certainly was a few hours of good game material. 

I enjoyed it myself as captain and don't plan to resign too soon!
