New Match Dates and Horsham Finalists of Sussex Trophy!

Mick Harris (3rd team and Paul Watson captain) writes:

Last Tuesday’s match at home to Woodpushers 1 was cancelled because of the weather. This has been re-arranged for Tuesday 02 April – the only clash appears to be domestically - the KO final and Plate.

I have offered dates of Tues 09 April and Tues 30 April to Uckfield 1 who are also due to play us, as they were unable to raise a team earlier in the season. No response yet received.

Finally, we have reached the Final of the Paul Watson trophy and will be AWAY to Lewes on Tuesday 07 May.

London Candidates update

Further to Ian's post on 3rd February, all ECF members who have provided email addresses to the ECF should have had this in their inboxes today...

Result still in the balance...

Horsham 2 travelled down to Eastbourne on Friday and came away 1.5-1.5 on the night - all is still to adjudicate for with one result outstanding...


Apologies for the emails which the yahoo account started sending out on Friday - it should be fixed now but I know how annoying these things can be so thought that sending an email apology would be counter-productive!

Horsham 5 defeat Haywards Heath 3

Roger Waddingham reports on last Tuesday's match between Horsham 5 and St Francis & Haywards Heath 3

The match was interesting. Matthew won easily on bottom board and then Tony lost, Matthew is now 5 / 5 in division three and must be headiing for some sort of league trophy.

All the other three games looked drawish for a while. Finally, Gary edged ahead in the endgame when he had his king on the correct side of the board to consume all his opponent's pawns.
