Competition rules

The home club is responsible for arranging the match. Toss for colour on board 1 at the start of the match. Time control is the normal for District League play: 35 moves in 1¼ hours followed by 15 minutes extra for a quickplay finish. If Division 2 team plays against a team playing in Division 1, the Division 2 team starts with a 1½ points advantage so that the Division side must win by 3 - 1 to go forward to the next round. In the event of a match between two teams playing in the same division ending in a 2 - 2 draw, the team with the better score after removing the result of the lowest board decisive game goes forward. If all games are drawn, the match must be replayed.
