The Leamington and District Chess League ended in May and the LDCL AGM was held at Olton Chess Club last week. Looking back through the website posts there is a slight sense of deja vu. Last year our LDCL team, led by Malcolm Harding, took home a trophy as winners of Division 4. Promoted to Division 3 for the 2017/18 season they came 3rd in that League, again Malcolm was captain.
This year it was the turn of our new LDCL Team (Rugby A) to take home a trophy. This team won Division 2 and Simon Turner (Team Captain) is pictured here receiving the award from Ben Graff (LDCL Chair). Ben commented on the success of this team in coming top of the division and being promoted to Division 1 in only one season.
Fingers crossed for yet more impressive performances from these teams in the 2018/19 season.
