Player Transfer

Posted by Lewis on November 10, 2015

Darren Laws has transferred from Tynemouth to Morpeth. Rule 8a is being waived, and Darren will eligible to play league chess for Morpeth. In general, I will consider player transfers during the first part of the season. A player will not be allowed to transfer league team more than once in a season.
