After consultation with other senior officers of the Association and the District Chess League, General Secretary Paul Sharrat has issued the following statement suspending league activities. "Dear Officers and Club Secretaries, In the light of the current Coronavirus pandemic and advice from the English Chess Federation, the officers of Worcestershire Chess Association and the Worcester and District League have decided to suspend all activities in relation to both leagues (including individual competitions) with immediate effect and until further notice. If clubs decide to proceed with fixtures already arranged, any results will not be included in the league structure; and any games played in such circumstances will only be submitted for grading on receipt of requests to that effect from the Secretaries of both participating clubs, as separate submissions on behalf of those clubs. I am sure that you will understand the rationale for this decision; the well-being of our members and their families, and the wider community, must be our prime concern at this time. We look forward to resuming normal activity in better times. Best wishes - Paul Sharratt (General Secretary)"
18 Apr. Halesowen 2 win Division 2 Championship by a nose. A win for Stourbridge against mid-table Kidderminster enabled them to equal Halesowen 2's match points, but Halesowen take the Division 2 championship because of a better game score: 23½ against Stourbridge's 22½ points. A dramatic end to an excitin Divion 2 championship season.
