It is a pleasure to report that our A team, despite managing only a draw in their last match of the 2021/2022 season, finished second in Division 2 of the Mid-Sussex Chess League, half a point ahead of Horsham 3, although well behind the winners, Crowborough. We scored four wins out of 7 matches, with one draw.
Thanks and congratulations are due to all team members: Janis Petersons, Leo (Lefert) Woning, Steve Blewitt, Andrew Fleming, John Kimber, Derek Cosens and Bill Tracey. Particularly fine performances by Janis with 5 points from 6, Steve Blewitt with 4 from 6 and Steve Merchant, 2 from 3. Our new member Leo Woning showed great promise with 1½/2.
Special thanks to our team captain Bill Tracey for all his hard organisational work in choosing the teams and getting them to distant away matches on the other side of the county.
