Greater Manchester enjoy a fight. They're the nearest you'll get to a duel brand

I'm not sure I understand the question ("branding"?) but provided you mean dual as in double rather than duel as in fight, there's the example of Herts and Cambs who have at various times entered county teams in both the EACU and SCCU competitions.

Manchester is not a county as listed by ECF under Counties. Appears to be decades of bitterness with County neighbour.

The Manchester Chess Federation is an amalgamation of the Manchester and District Chess Association & the Greater Manchester County Chess Association. It is a constituent unit of the Federation along with the London Chess League. Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county which was created in 1974.

This is correct but I don't think that they have simultaneously entered the same competition via both Unions.

I have some recollection that for a period in the late 1980s / early 1990s Cambridgeshire entered the Open Division competition of both Unions.

I may be mistaken.

Very lucky even :) If you really want to know then something like the truth is in a few threads on this forum, not really recommended though.
