County Teams 2012/2013

The Open Team will automatically qualify for the next stages of the MCCU County Championship as Warwickshire are the only other MCCU County to enter a team. The match between Staffs and Warwickshire to decide who will be Champions and who will be Runners-Up will be played on 2nd February 2013.

Due to lack of a Captain, and support generally, there will be no U160 team this year.

The U140 team will be Captained by last year's Terriers Captain, Denis Nesbitt.

There will be no separate Staffs Terriers and Staffs Bulldogs in this year's U120 County Championship. The lack of a Captain coming forward in the north of the County means that there will be just one Staffs U120 team. This will be Captained by Peter Evans from Stafford Chess Club.

It has also been decided that, due to the lack of games for the Open team, the County will investigate the possibility of running an U180 team next season.
