Re: Preliminary & Quarter Final Results

Poor old WECU bringing up the rear again... Hardly surprising when only three WECU teams entered events. I'm sure every WECU county has the players to put out a competitive team in most of the grading limited sections if they wanted to. Lots of counties could field grading limited teams; the proble...

I would imagine WECU has the lowest population of the Unions?
The regions as defined by ONS don't correspond with the Union boundaries. I would think looking at the figures that the EACU has the lowest population.

Re: Victory for the Dinosaurs

The dinosaurs may have won the battle, but they have lost the war. I have played in two quarter-finals ( having travelled great distances ) to play four hour games and am now informed that our semi-final will be on the same basis. Why this is necessary for a game to which the players have devoted a...

Re: DIV 3 North..more teams wanted..

We moved from the promotion pool of Division Three (South) and obviously our first team would like to return to that Division and I will write more in hope than anticipation to see if that's possible. Daventry/Bedford is a much better fit than Bolton/Doncaster I'm afraid. Failing a team folding - a...

Re: DIV 3 North..more teams wanted..

It's already well-known but the two Ashfield-Breadsall teams will be leaving Division Three(North) next season. We moved from Division Three(South) and Division Four(South) two seasons ago when they moved to Wokefield. However the venue at Bolton meant that several squad members withdrew from 4NCL c...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2017-18

Week 38 It was a hot hundred - no not the highest score of the week - but the margin of Andrew Harley's win as he successfully defended his title as Premier Chess Fantasy Football Manager. In the final weeks his challengers melted away to give Andrew an impressive victory. His overall position was ...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2017-18

Week 37 ........ it is now!!! Kenneth Wolstenholme as Andrew Harley opens up an 88 point gap at the top of the League. The only person who might have had confidence to close such a gap is Carlos Carvalhal who said earlier this week ""In this moment we are not relegated." but need to turn round a 10...

Re: Div 3 North 2017 - 18

Congratulations to Bradford, but farcical that there promotion place should be decided by winning a match against their B team. Obviously all the discussion earlier in the thread regarding pairings has failed to provide a sensible framework for the league. I echo Martin's comments above. They were ...
