Match report
By Peter Evans
Staffordshire’s Under 120 team lost their County Championship Quarter Final to a strong Herfordshire team on Saturday May 2nd. Staffs were out-graded on every board bar the top one and the only winner for Staffs was Nic Wright in the last match to finish.

The game was played at a nice venue, Potterspury Village Hall, and although they beat us I found them a pleasant and hospitable team and would like to wish them luck in the rest of the competition.

As a mini end of County Season report, Captain Peter Evans would like to thank everyone who has played this year. Thanks to John Day from Newcastle Chess club for his organisation at the home matches, and not forgetting the parents of the junior players for their cooperation.

This season 20 players including 2 juniors from 12 clubs played in the team.

Peter.
