Adrian’s Report on the Counties Final
The County Championships Finals were again held at Moat College in Leicester. The proceedings were opened by the Chief Executive Officer of the Midlands Counties Chess Union, Julie Johnson. Immediately following her speech, John Wickham presented Julie with the Presidents Award
In the Open, an all-SCCU clash saw Surrey attempting to win their first Open title since 1954 against a strong Kent team. In a very tight match there were only 4 decisive games with Surrey making Kent wait until the last game for their first full point, Surrey prevailing 9-7.
The Minor Counties saw Hertfordshire attempting to win the trophy for the third consecutive year, this time against neighbours Bedfordshire. Despite slightly out-grading Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire were unable to claim the hat-trick with Bedfordshire winning 9-7.
Nottinghamshire returned to the Under 180 final hoping to put last years defeat behind them. Another very close match saw them triumph against Devon by a single point.
Kent were the most successful county in getting teams to the Finals, being the only team with 3 representatives. However, their only success was in the Under 160s where they defeated Lancashire by 10½- 5½.
The U140s was yet another very close match, with Hampshire winning 8½- 7½ over Kent.[br]Warwickshire had 2 representatives in the lowest graded sections with the teams having mixed results, the Under 120 team narrowly defeating Lancashire 6½- 5½.
However, the Warwickshire Under 100 team succumbed to Essex by the score 8½- 3½.
I would like to thank Dave Welch, John Shaw and John Wickham for their excellent work as a very good arbiting team. Cyril Johnson also helped with his considerable arbiting experience as well as ably assisting Julie who excelled herself in providing food and drinks for all present
