Players Needed for North East 4NCL Team

Posted by Lewis on February 18, 2019

Paul is still looking for one player for the next 4NCL weekend. Anyone over ~185 would be guaranteed a game against a GM on the Saturday

The North East team in 4NCL Division 1 has so far managed to gather 4 points from 6 matches to take into the second half of the season. The team will be missing several players for the 3rd weekend when they will play the mighty Guildford 1st team (Adams, Jones, McShane, Sadler, etc.) and then a more important match, probably against Oldham 3Cs. If anyone is interested in playing the dates are 16-17 March and the weekend takes place in Telford.

Anyone interested should contact Paul via email, with 4NCL in the title of the email: paul.dargan[at]paconsulting.com
