A Successful Season for Central!

Saturday, May 7th, 2022

(Kevin Argyle) A makeshift season admittedly but it was great to have OTB chess up and running again in Notts. Both Central 1 and 2 performed creditably with the second team finishing up amongst the leaders in division 5 and Central 1 in second place in division 3 as I write (although admittedly unlikely to […]

“House warming” event

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

We are hoping to hold an informal house warming event on Tuesday 27th August. This is a test event, perfectly informal, blitz tournament. Starting at 7.30. Space will be limited for this event, we only have a limited number of sets and clocks, so anyone interested will need to reserve a spot. Entry is not […]

Central 2 Relegated. Central 1?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

(By Kevin Argyle) It was potentially a tense and exciting last match for the second team with us needing a win (a draw would have been enough if the League decided only two would go down). Radcliffe & Bingham 2 also needed a win to stay up. As it turned out, although we beat R&B […]

Central 2 Fighting On!

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

(by Kevin Argyle) Two excellent results have given the second team a good chance of survival. Last week we entertained unbeaten West Bridgford 3, already crowned champions, and almost beat them. Chris Budd was ‘staffed in’ but got the day wrong and so WB started with a default. Ironically this oversight may well have helped […]

Latest Matches.

Friday, March 25th, 2016

(by Kevin Argyle) On Tuesday evening, both Central 1 and Central 3 played, home and away, respectively. The first team signed off the season with a convincing win against Newark 2. I turned up around 8 to be met by John Harrison going in the opposite direction after winning quickly against Malcolm Hargreaves who appeared […]

Decisions, Decisions…

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

(by Kev.A., from observation & Alan’s report) Strange how things turn out, with last week’s first team match against Nomads being postponed, as agreed by the captains, then being back on, as overturned by the League. Nomads were struggling to get a team out with it being half-term week and the expectation was that they […]

Central News 10th Dec.

Friday, December 11th, 2015

Not much Christmas cheer for Central 2 and 3 in the run up to the festive period. The Third Team were turned over by West Notts and not even a fist fight in the pool room next door could put the youngsters off their stride. The Second Team hosted WB4 and I had some hopes […]

The Central Week

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

The wind was howling around our ears last Tuesday as both the First and Third teams ventured into battle against Ashfield 3 and University 3 respectively. I had volunteered to play for the Third team and after an uneventful trip we found ourselves waiting at the Portland Building outside room C30 along with the Long […]

Central News

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

An interesting week and a bit for Central with all three teams in action. Unfortunately Central 3 took the only point with a draw against Nomads 3 last night. Last Monday Central 2 travelled to The Willow Tree to take on the lowest of three West Bridgford teams in division 4. As always, a Monday […]

Sheffield Success For Andrew Sutton!

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Central were represented at the recent Sheffield Congress by AK and Andrew who both entered the Minor Section. After a draw in the first game Andrew stormed away to take a share of first prize, the highlight being a win in 10 moves on the Sunday. AK finished on a respectable 50% score and will […]
