Central 1 Fall to Defeat

Thursday, April 21st, 2022

(Kevin Argyle) West Bridgford 2 were the visitors on Tuesday evening looking for revenge after our win at their place earlier in the season. Our team was weakened by the absence of both Mark Radford (recovering from a kidney transplant) and Adrian Dibble (moved away). Still we were hopeful of a good result in the […]

Thursday, April 14th, 2022

  (Kevin Argyle) Central 2 maintained their hope of Division 5 promotion with a convincing 3-1 win against Radcliffe & Bingham 3 this week. Mike James was the first to bring home the full point with an excellent display on board 4. The two players were evenly matched by rating but Mike gradually won more […]

March League Action

Thursday, March 17th, 2022

(Kevin Argyle) Both Central teams played on Wednesday 16th with the first team travelling to Grantham on a miserable evening and the second team playing a rearranged game against West Bridgford.

Back to Winning Ways!

Tuesday, March 1st, 2022

After an underwhelming period from Nottingham Central teams recently, the 1st team got back to winning ways Monday evening against Nomads 2. In doing so, we completed the double over them and left them rooted to the foot of division 3 whilst we move into clear second. Alan and Mark completed convincing wins on the […]

League Action 30/11

Tuesday, December 7th, 2021

Grantham travelled to our venue for the second time in two days having played Nomads the night before. This time we were consigned to the conservatory room due to a wake being held upstairs. The light was just about adequate, reminiscent of the dark days at the King Billy. To the chess. Alan continued his […]

Central 1 v W.Notts 2 (Tues 9/11/21)

Wednesday, November 10th, 2021

Central 1 remained unbeaten after a 2-2 draw against West Notts 2 at the Embankment pub. Things started well after another fast and convincing win by Mark. His opponent played very passively in the opening allowing Mark to build an impressive and unchallenged pawn centre. Lacking any space to maneouvre, his opponent was nicely checkmated […]

Central are Back in Action!

Wednesday, October 13th, 2021

The new 21/22 season saw both Central 1 and Central 2 in action with differing fortunes.   Central 2 made the (very short) trip to West Bridgford club on Monday but only came away with a half-point courtesy of Lukasz. Both Joe and Ben were playing their first league game and will benefit from the […]
