Ready for the off!

The newly-merged Condover & Church Stretton chess club is about to kick off its season with a special simultaneous display by leading county player Nigel Ferrington on Tue 3 September.

The club is running two teams in the Shropshire league with Steve Rooney captain of the A team in Div 1, and John Casewell captain of the B team in Div 3.

New players are very welcome - just turn up on at Condover Social Club on Tuesdays from 7.30pm. We promise a warm welcome and a great atmosphere for social chess, as well as some good competitive games for those who want to play league chess.

The club is also going digital this year with a new set of high-spec digital clocks, thanks to the kind generosity of club member Graham Shepherd.

The first league fixtures are on Tue 10 September with both teams in action. See the fixture list on the right for all the dates, but remember that social chess will take place every Tuesday. In the meantime, if you want any more information, contact Steve Rooney on 01694 723724.
