Manningtree’s Bob Stephens has agreed to take over from long-serving Jim Buis as the County Correspondence captain. This is excellent news, and will ensure that Suffolk can continue to participate in the annual competition.
The current situation in Division 1 (Ward-Higgs) is that Suffolk have scored 3½ points out of a possible seven (all draws!). Unusually, these results all come from the top four boards; none of the bottom four boards have finished any of their games.
Suffolk are mid-table and provided some of the outstanding matches are won or drawn, we should avoid relegation. This would be quite an achievement, having been promoted last season.
