Our fourth team in the Stockport League plays in the Limit League division, which was specifically set up for four-board teams with a total grade limit of 400.  Individual team members on this team may not have a grade (ECF) greater than 120.   So it is intended to give more evenly matched games to players with grades at the lower end.  Since this league was set up for the 2013-2014 season, East Cheshire D-team has managed to finish first, then second for 2 seasons running, under Keith Hodgson's able captaincy.  Last year hoever, they won only twice, lost 4 times and drew twice, finishing below the mid-table for the first time.  This season, with more players to choose from, they plan to rise up the table again!.

Keith will be joined by Geoff Smith as co-captain for this season, aiming again to give the lower-graded players in the club as many opportunities to play in matches as possible.

D-team news

Tue 25th Oct 2016

Having lost its first match to Denton, East Cheshire D bounced back with a win over Stockport; both Nick and Geoff Clarke won, Keith drew, and Dave Harris lost an enjoyable-sounding topsy-turvy game in his debut for East Cheshire.
