Is your club good enough to be Staffordshire county champions?

17 Nov.

During one evening of the first week in June 2017, teams from North and South Staffordshire will compete for the title of Staffordshire county champions.

There are separate competitions for
Hickman trophy Open. 6 players per team,
Gothard trophy U161. 5 players,
Jackson trophy U141. 5 players,
Withnall trophy U121. 4 players.

Clubs will be nominated by either the Wolverhampton & District Chess League, or the North Staffordshire & District Chess Association. The NSDCA and WDCL will be asking selected clubs if they would like to compete, so please let your club secretary know if you are interested. Tournament secretary is Steve Emmerton from Fenton chess club.

Rate of play will be either all moves in 85 minutes, or Fischer time of 75 minutes with 10 second per move increment.

To be eligible your club must be based within the Staffordshire boundary as it was before the 1974 Local Government act revised it.
