League Match and Club Championship Summary

League Matches

Tuesday evening saw Heywood 1st team players venture as far as Great Lever to play out a second round tie (or shall we call it a final given that there were only 4 teams in the competition?) in the Central Lancashire League Vaux Cup.  Great Lever have been playing strongly this season and unfortunately came out on top tonight taking home the silverware along with the precious rating points.  Despite having an overall impressive rating advantage only top board George took a point for Heywood.

On Wednesday night it was Central Lancs League competition again as Heywood A hosted Leyland A for a Division B play off.  Pre-match Heywood sat in top spot with a 2 point advantage over Leyland in second.  By the end of the evening Heywood managed a convincing win and with it the division.
