Chapman Cup Semi-Final

The Chapman Cup semi-final between Wigston 2 and Hinckley will be held at the chess club's new venue on Thursday 30th August. The team will be:

Phil Watkinson, Stephen Smith, Andrew Pike and Barrie Cooper

Unlike the first two matches in this handicap tournament when we won because of winning or drawing one game against very strong opposition; this time the two teams will be equally matched so we will need to contest every board.

We are one match from the final - if we get through, Wigston would be in the final twice in the last three years.
