Review of Last Season
We fielded two teams in Division 1 of the Shropshire chess League. Our A team were just pipped to the title by Shrewsbury A, whilst the B team performed heroically to come so close to avoiding the inevitable drop into Division 2. Newport had to recall all their strong players from university to level with Telepost B on points and stay up on goal difference. In Division 3 our C team finished a creditable third.
Nigel Ferrington was again crowned county individual champion, whilst Richard Bryant became national U170 champion with a phenomenal series of tournament successes around the country.
The club have the opportunity this year to put a team into each of the three Shropshire League divisions. Thus all players will be able to play at a level to suit their abilities. After much discussion a team structure was accepted. (see list of members / teams)
