The ECF National Schools Girls semi finals Jan 2020

It is with regret that I announce the postponement of the final of the above event, due to take place on 4/5 April. The safety and health of all concerned must be our top priority. As yet, it is impossible to name a replacement date. When the situation clarifies, I will be back in touch. Best Regards.

Bob was a one-off, in the chess world a promoter , a publisher of eclectic material, and a bookseller, all on his own terms. I k...

Re: The ECF National Schools Girls semi finals Jan 2020

We are now up to 84 teams of three in the southern semi final.

Five teams in the north. Vast areas of the country unrepresented.

The closing date for entries in the south is 5th Jan. I’m willing to keep entry open for as long as possible in the north.

Teams of three, that’s all.
