Worcester Wolfpack team enters 4NCL online

20 Jan. With Wolfpack's captain busy with his postgraduate course, Ray Collett has entered a Worcester Wolfpack 4-player team in the 5th 4NCL online club season. Colin Vernon founded the online Wolfpack teams in 4NCL with players he had met in Coulsdon Chess congresses, but has too little time to lead the team in the fifth season. Ray offered to lead a single team and the Worcester Wolfpack has inherited players from the former Wolfpack teams, which included three Worcester players Collett, Hayles and Vernon. It is likely that the team will include a mix of former Wolfpack players and some additional players from Worcester. All matches are on Tuesday evenings and games have a classical time control of 45min + 15seconds.
