A new Redbridge All Sorts team a new 4NCL Division. As this is the lowest Division, pairings are done on the Swiss system, so opponents are not known from one round to the next until published shortly before the new round. There are 66 teams in the Division.
Odd scores can crop up, usually caused by application of penalty points. e.g. a defaulted game apart from the score as a win for the opponent, also attracts a half-point penalty.
