Disappointing Finish For Cheddleton In European Club Cup

Cheddleton won their 5th round match against SK TEAM VIKING by 4-2 to make it 3 wins in a row. Things went downhill after that though and they were beaten in both the 6th and 7th rounds to finish in 22nd position - 4 places below their ranking position. In the 6th round they came up against an all-GM team in BEER SHEVA of Israel and went down by 3.5 - 2.5. In the 7th and final round they were beaten 3.5 -2.5 by SC MPA-MARIA SAAL of Austria. Malcolm Armstrong played on board 6 in the match against BEER SHEVA and was outgraded by 400 points !!
