Friday Evening Results

Division 3


Crewe 'B' have snatched the Division 3 Championship on game points from under the noses of Cheddleton 'D' following an exciting 2 - 2 draw at Cheddleton 'E' last night. Trailing 2 - 1, and 2 pawns down on board 4, Dave Price won an enthralling endgame to give Crewe the point they needed to take the title.

Division 5


Bottom of the table Cheddleton 'I' pulled off a surprise 3 - 1 win against title challengers Fenton 'D', despite being outgraded on every board and by a total of 106 points. Fenton have now gone from mid-season favourites to outsiders. However, they can still take the title if they win their final two matches, although on current form this is beginning to look unlikely.
