ILFORD CHESS CLUB- end of year report 2016 (from Jef Page’s notes)
ESSEX CHESS LEAGUE DIVISION 2, NORTH CIRCULAR CHESS LEAGUE DIVISION B.
A good end to 2016. we are doing OK and harbour hopes of winning both divisions- IF (big capital letters) we win all our remaining matches.
In the ECL we have played 4 matches: 1 won, 2 draws, 1 loss. Good but not earth shattering, but we have a chance. Southend walloped us 0.5 – 7.5, and we have to play them at the seaside. But they in turn lost to Barking so if we can take a strong team to Southend…
In the NCCL, our new venture this year, we have started well and are the only unbeaten team in division B (similar level to Division 2 in Essex).
NCCL 6 matches: 4 won, 2 drawn, and lie 2nd to Chingford, just a point behind, but we have matches in hand on them. Leading individual scores so far:
ECL: Neville Twitchell, Jef Page 2½/4; Tom Barton 2/3 Unbeaten.
NCCL: Neville 3½/5, Jef Page 3/5; Leonardo Stefanoni 3/3 Unbeaten.
