4NCL – Tues 6th Oct 20 – 7:30pm – Report
The 4NCL is a joint venture between Castlehill Chess Club Dundee and Dundee Chess Club. We have 2 teams in the 4NCL and one team in the 4JNCL (junior team).
Division One – Group D
Watford 1 2, Dundee City A 2
Both teams were evenly matched on all boards, with maybe Watford having the edge. As it turned out they could not be split and a draw was the fair result. Declan Shafi (Castlehill) won his match on board 2. while Dundee`s Jacques Ophoff & Ed Spencer both drew their matches. The normally reliable Stephen Hogg (Dundee) unfortunately lost this one. It does not happen that much!
Dundee City A sit in 4th place on 3 points, just ahead of 3 other teams on the same points but separated by GP points. The leaders Wood Green are on 8 points with 3 rounds left.
Stroud Middles 1½, Dundee City B 2½
Great win for our “B” team again with wins for Sam Gregory (Castlehill) and Alan Borwell (Dundee) on boards 1 |& 2 respectively. Euan Dawson (Castlehill) on board 4 got a battling draw, while Andre Babin (Castlehill) lost his match on board 3. (There’s always one! Sorry Andre!)
Dundee City B are flying high in 2nd place on 8 points. Leaders Hackney Hackers and 3rd place Imperial Knightriders are also no 8 points but all separated by GP points. Cracking performances by Dundee City B and all it`s players. Keep it up lads!
Next matches Tues 20th Oct, 7:30pm
Div 1: Dundee City A v Kent KJCA A
Div 6: Still to be decided?
