The club’s second involvement with 4NCL had a more considered approach than the late notice introduction into Season 2.
For 4NCL Season 3, a number of additional local players were added to the squads, with the result that four teams have been entered, this time from the start of Season 3, all teams being styled “Redbridge All Sorts”, 1, 2, 3 and 4. A pleasant surprise was to find the first team having gone up a Division, to Division 5, although having finished outside the promotion spots in Season 2 (due to having entered from Round 3 and therefore giving all other teams a two match start). RA2 are in Division 6 and RA3 and 4 in the new Divison 7.
End of Term Report
RA1 finish 2nd in Division 5, Group C, with 11/14, behind Chessable White Rose 3 who won the section with a 100% score. Winners in each group go into the play-off to decide Division Champions – at least we avoided that – while seconds also get promoted.
Division 5 table
RA2 finish 3rd in Division 6, Group B, 4 points short of promotion.
Division 6 Table
RA3 finished 24th of 72(!) teams on tie-break with 8/14 (=19th on MP).
RA4 are 67th/72 on 3 points, but have the merit of heading their score group.
