New County Secretary

Ray Dolan was elected to succeed Andrew Davies as both County General Secretary and Correspondence Chess Secretary at last night's County AGM. All other Officers were re-elected unopposed. Full details of the AGM will appear shortly when the Minutes are published. However, it is worth noting that the rules regarding the County Cups were changed. The Gothard, Jackson and Withnall competitions will become 4 board matches instead of 5, and all clubs playing in the Wolverhampton, Cannock and NSDCA Leagues will be eligible to enter, not just those within the Staffordshire County Boundaries. All clubs paying Staffordshire affiliation fees will be eligible for free entry, while non-Staffordshire clubs will be liable to an entry fee of £5.
