The chess calendar is quite full most of the time, so you`re going to have to get stuck in regardless.
I see your match with Liverpool went well. Have you any results and score details you can post here..

It would certainly be good if Alan Walton had some kind of challenge match prior to seeking the nomination for the vacant OPEN team place in the National stages in December. I can see no good reason to leave the OPEN place unfilled if a valid wild card option is available. GMan fills that slot nicely if Alan can get a team together to play in the Finals stages.
it all about looking at date etc
Er, no; do either team actually want to play? Answer almost certainly, no, so end discussion

Shame if true..
Both counties are capable of putting out good teams.
Maybe celebration matches like the one v Liverpool recently will be the norm for our top players.
Certainly I see merit in the OPEN team playing at least one competitive match prior to the National stages.
