Team leader Will Brooks lost again, but the team still beat Croatia thanks to wins from Matthew Madfadyen, Andrew Simons and Nick Krempel.

The Cheshire tournament was rather small this year, thanks to a clash with the Manchester football derby and other factors, but much enjoyed by those who attended. In the top group Alex Rix (3 dan London) was the winner, beating Tony Atkins (2 dan Reading) in the final. In the Handicap Section, the winner on 4/5 was Matt Marsh (7 kyu Sheffield).

Please note that our previous announcement about bookings was in error in that the hotel mentioned should have been the Premier Inn and not the Best Western. There are currently plenty of rooms at the Premier Inn.

The website has the correct and up-to-date information.

We apologise for this confusion.
