A total of 25 Suffolk players travelled to Hinckley and Daventry for this weekend’s final rounds in the 4NCL. The results were mixed, with disappointment for two of the Anglian Avengers teams, who were hoping for promotion to Divisions 1 and 2.
The results for the five Suffolk-based teams were:
Anglian Avengers 1 – one win and two draws
Anglian Avengers 2 – one win and two losses
Anglian Avengers 3 – one win and two losses
Iceni 1 – one win and two losses
Iceni 2 – three losses
So overall there were four wins, two drawn matches and nine losses.
AA1, in the Championship pool of Division 2, really needed three wins to be promoted to Division 1. They won their first match convincingly (6 – 2), but could only manage 4 – 4 draws in Rounds 10 and 11. They finished the pool with 6 points. The four promoted teams scored between 7 and 9 points.
AA2, second in Division 2 before the weekend started, won their first match but lost the next two. They finished one place away from promotion, in fifth place. Iceni 1 ended up in 20th place (out of 63 teams); AA 3 were 32nd and Iceni 2 were 57th.
The three Suffolk players in Division 1 were all unbeaten over the three games: Adam Hunt scored 2½, Justin Tan 2 and Dagne Ciuksyte 2. One of Justin’s draws was against GM Matt Turner.
In Division 2, Ed Player and Mark Gray were unbeaten on 2 points, whilst David Spence recorded three draws. Other scores were Shaun Munson 2, Alan Merry 1½, Adam Taylor 1½.
