4NCL Results

A total of 26 Suffolk players travelled to Hinckley and Daventry this weekend for Rounds 3 and 4 of the 4NCL.

Playing at Hinckley in Division 2 were Anglian Avengers 1, who consolidated their position in Pool A by winning both matches.   They now lie in second place in the league table (see below).

The other four teams (Anglian Avengers 2 and 3; Iceni 1 and 2) all played in Division 3 at Daventry.   All eight results were extremely close; often it was the final game to finish that decided the match result.

Of the Suffolk players, two won both games: Ian Wallis (Anglian Avengers 2) and Phil Hopkins (Anglian Avengers 3).   Those on 1½ points included Ed Player and Alan Merry (Anglian Avengers 1), David Brown and Alex Sheerin (Anglian Avengers 3), Bob Jones and Steve Lovell (Iceni 2).   12-year old Alex Sheerin's performance was particularly noteworthy.   A late replacement, he beat a 1610 and drew with a 1780 (Elo ratings; neither opponent has a current ECF grade).

Three other players (Adam Hunt ½, Justin Tan 2 and Dagne Ciuksyte 1) are in non-Suffolk teams in Division 1.
