Dormant Inter-County teams

Staffordshire Inter-county teams which are not currently active


Bulldogs and Terriers. A pair of U100/U120 teams

For seven years, from 2005/6 to 2011/12, Staffordshire ran a pair of teams in what was then the lowest section of ECF Inter-county chess.

Alongside the existing U100 team, captained by David Buckley, a second team, captained initially by Traci Whitfield, was added. Running two teams gave more opportunities for players to experience Inter-county chess and could also help encourage younger players.

To begin with, the teams were simply ‘A’ and ‘B’. The ‘Terriers’ and ‘Bulldogs’ names were introduced later.

Terriers captains (2005/6 to 2011/12)

2011/12   (Cap: Denis Nesbitt)
2010/11   (Capt: Steve Emmerton)
2008-9 to 2009/10   (Capt: Paul Clapham)
2005/6 to 2007/8   (Capt: Traci Whitfield)

Bulldogs captains (2005/6 to 2011/12)

2010/11 to 2011/12   (Capt: Peter Evans)
2005/6 to 2009/10   (Capt: David Buckley)

For the 2012/13 season, Staffordshire reverted to running just one U120 team, captained by Peter Evans. Denis Nesbitt became captain of the U140 team.
