We had just 2 matches this week, the first away at Tameside, our A team beat their A team 3.5 - 0.5 with wins from Bill O'Rourke, John Addison and James Wildsmith and a draw from Steve Flaherty. The second match was Heywood 3 against Blue Club B in the MCF cup, and although heavily out graded on most boards we ended up drawing 3.5 - 3.5 but as it was the cup the dreaded board count lost us the game. Wins from Peter Hurn, Derek Marsden and James Wildsmith and a draw from John Addison was not quite enough but good effort all round.
The first game of the season took place this week with our MCF 3rd team v 4th Team in MCF Div C. The 3rd Team came out on top with a final score of 4.5 to 2.5, with wins from Steve Mason, John Pickersgill and Jason Chapman and draws from Ian Mitchell, Akin Soyoye and Andrew Heys. Most of the regular seeded players were absent so thanks to all those who took part at short notice.

On Monday 2nd Sep our summer team beat Northenden away by 3 - 1 with wins from Kyle Pelling, John Addison and Steve Flaherty, this win means we are Div C champions this year so well done to John and all who played for him. Our winter season is due to start soon.
On Thursday, August 28th eight players took part in a themed tournament at the club. One of the summer coaching sessions had consisted of examining several wild positions from the two knights defence, and the tournament gave players the chance to try out these positions in actual play against one another. Winner, with a maximum four wins out of four, was twelve year old Shaked Nussbaum, whilst runner up was sixty nine year old Steve Flaherty, demonstrating that chess truly is a game for life. Many thanks to the players who donated prizes for this enjoyable event.
