Meir lose in Jackson Final

In a close run Final the score of 3:1 fails to reflect the tense end when a win on Board 2 would have made the result 2 : 2 and Meir would have won on Board Count!

Friday, 13 April 2018


Meir win through to Jackson Cup Final  by the narrowest of margins :-

The result away to Stafford was a 2:2 draw but Meir won on Board 2 whilst losing on Board 3.

On Board Count used to decide tied results Meir win.

Clive won on Board 2 whilst Peter (Board.1) and Ewan (Board.4) drew. Dave F. was the unlucky loser on Board 3.

Meir march into the Final on 13th.June to play either Cheddleton or Lichfield.

Clear your diaries for a night of excitement!

MEIR through to next Round in Jackson Cup

On the 6th. March Meir won 3:1 away from home at Rugeley in the South of the County.

Peter was on top board and won against a higher graded opponent.

Ewan also shone on bottom board but he did play a lesser graded mortal.

Clive and Dave Fuller both drew against higher graded opponents.

The next round is away at Stafford so should be an interesting night especially for Peter.

Well done Team.
