They think it's all over....It is now!

Russell Sherwood  Monday, April 2, 2018

The final and deciding game of the First Welsh Championships of the WCCF era has concluded, with a victory for new Champion LGM Helen Sherwood.


The event turned out to be very tight with 8 players within 1.5 points of first place and many permutations of final standings being possible until the last games completed. Gareth Yeo, in particular, can be only disappointed in almost pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in Welsh CC History, following his early blunder.

As a reminder  Andrew Smith and Eleanor Collins qualify to the Final for the next renewal.

The Ospreys have landed.

Y Gweilch NiMo are on their way to Division 1 of the 5th British Webserver Team Tournament.

They have just won this years Division 2, having also won last years Division 3. The four man team was Ian Jones, Adam Davies, Glyn Sinnett and Andrew Gibbons.

Andrew had a bad back through out this year’s tournament carrying the other three players in the team.


Please note if you have a team or are interested in playing in 5th British please give Russell a shout.
