League Cup semi-finals

This is the draw for the League Cup semi-finals:

Sudbury v Manningtree

Saxmundham v Ipswich A

The second semi-final above is a repeat of last year’s final, which was won by Ipswich A by 5 points to 3.

The competition has had its problems this season, with one match in Group B not being played.  Competitions Secretary Mike McNaughton was called upon to decide which team should qualify.

The League Cup is a Rapidplay competition, with each team member playing two games as White and Black, with 30 minutes for each player.

These matches should be played by the end of March.

EDIT.    Sudbury played Manningtree yesterday.   The score was 4 – 4.   The winners are Manningtree as their aggregate grade (540) was lower than Sudbury (580) – see Rule 37  (“In the event of a tie in the knockout stages the team with the lower aggregate grade in the tied match shall win”)
