C & DCCC – entry for the 2015/16 Season

– from Neil Limbert

I hope your players enjoyed their chess in the 2014/5 season and that you will all enter teams again for next season.

Division 1 (Ward-Higgs) was won by Essex A narrowly, on tie-break from Yorkshire A. Relegated are Hertfordshire & West Wales. See: https://www.iccf.com/event?id=45571

Division 2 (Sinclair) has been won by Essex C with Yorkshire C in 2nd place. Both these teams have declined promotion, so promotion is offered to the teams finishing 3rd & 4th. There are still two games ongoing which may need adjudicating. However, Suffolk & Staffordshire will finish 3rd & 4th & both have been offered promotion. Relegated are Durham & Merseyside. See: https://www.iccf.com/event?id=48110
