New member Alistair Macnaughton wins club championship

21 May. Final played at Droitwich. Ray chose an unusual line in Bishop's Opening and Alistair soon nulified white's advantage of the move. In an apparently equal and queenless position he found an excellent move to shatter whit'e pawns. From here, Alistair the new member increased his advantage and won pawns in the exchanges into an easily won rook and pawn ending.
10 & 14 May. Semi-final results. New members Alistair and Joe faced each other in the earlier game with Alistair winning on 10 May. In the second semi-final played at Droitwich, Ray beat Nick in a hard fought game.

Worcester knocked out of Wheatley Cup

10 Apr, John Hesketh reports. We arrived in style in a slightly vintage classic car at Wythall for our team kandicap match. Having done the maths, it worked out that 4-1 would be victory to them, 3½ - 1½ and we would win. Ed Osbourne won his game. All we needed now was a draw to clinch this. I pushed too hard in the early part of the game with a less than cautious development, losing a bishop at the end of exchanges. I pressed on in the hope of recovering, but the opportunity didn't materialise. The results trickled in, our heroes were falling like nine pins. Phil was the last to finish. As it turned out, Phil was defeated by a really strong player. The final result was 4 – 1 to Shirley and Wythall. So with the handicap a victory for them. Congratulations Shirley & Wythall.
