Half-time in the Bury League

The six clubs in the Bury Area Chess League provide a total of 19 teams, playing in three divisions.

The club of the season, so far, is Linton.   Their three teams are unbeaten; in fact they have won 15 games out of 16 played, with just one drawn match.

Predictably, two Linton teams - Blacks and Whites - head Divisions 2 and 3 respectively.   But Linton A, the one team to have drawn a match, are in second place behind Bury St Edmunds Scorpions, the team which consists of Ipswich-based players (Moore, Gregory, Munson, Wallis, Lunn).

These are the current tables:

Division 1

Bury St Edmunds Scorpions540119
Linton A541017½
Bury St Edmunds Scarabs520311½
Cambridge Examiners520310½
Cambridge Choristers5113

Division 2

Linton Blacks660022½

Bury St Edmunds Cobras621315
Bury St Edmunds Vipers630315

Division 3

Linton Whites550019½
Bury St Edmunds E531115
Cambridge Gowns512210½
Bury St Edmunds F511310
Bury St Edmunds G5122

Individually, the top players in each division are:

Division 1   -   Ashley Stewart (Linton A)   -   4½/5
Division 2   -   Tom Smith (Cambridge Dons)   -   5½/6
Division 3   -   Adam Leigh (Bury St Edmunds F)   -   3½/4
