New Secretary For Newcastle

After many years of service to Newcastle Chess Club, Alan Paling has decided to step down and hand over the reins to somebody else. I've resisted the urge to say somebody younger !! Following their AGM, Richard Cantliff has taken over as Secretary and his contact details can be found here.

South Cheshire Shield

As expected, the South Cheshire Shield title will be decided in the very last match of the competition when Newcastle host Crewe 'A' next Wednesday. Newcastle are a point clear after beating Alsager last night, a result that gave Alsager the unenviable record of losing all 8 of their matches, meaning that they only need a draw to win it.

2018/2019 Fixture List

The 2018/2019 Fixtures have now been published on the League Management System.

South Cheshire Shield

With only a handful of games left in this season's South Cheshire Shield it looks highly likely that the competition will be decided in the very last match, when the top 2 teams, Newcastle and Crewe 'A', play each other. Newcastle currently hold a 1 point lead at the top of the table so, assuming that both teams beat bottom of the table Alsager in their other remaining matches, a draw would suffice for them.
