03.11.2018 - Juniors show the way

Crowborough vs Horsham 2nd November 2018Following a disappointing first league result by the Seniors on Wednesday going down 3-2 away at the Argumentatives the juniors played a home match against Horsham another Sussex club with a thriving junior section.The result was 4-0 though the score does not reflect the closeness of the match exemplified by Henry on top board playing against Paul Fabian going over 100 moves.Following a very level Rook and Pawn ending Henry exchanged rooks transitioning into a King and Pawn game that although still drawn was strewn with danger.   Thomas ended his captains curse and won a fine game by not castling too early. Suriya played an opening line that he had recently been practising while Theo on board 4 extended his winning streak for the team to five.Thank you to Horsham for a well contested match played in good spirit.2nd November 2018   ...

Please email secretary@crowboroughchess.org to be added. We will still accept cash or a cheque of course but direct payment is easier for us as HSBC have now closed the Crowborough branch. The AGM took place on Friday 21st September 2018. It was noted that although we made a small surplus last year with an end of season bank balance of £600 there are several factors that will impinge on next year’s finances. ·       Last year the 2017 Crowborough Congress had a bumper entry of 48 while this year it was 36.
