Coronavirus update: Club nights suspended

Posted by Tim W on March 20, 2020

We have decided to suspend Thursday club nights until further notice.

But you can play with us online at https://www.chess.com/club/tynedale-chess-club-1
Chess.com is free,, but you need to set amn account, and then join the club

There has been some confusion about the club name, though hopefully that has now been sorted.

Within chess.com the club is called “tynedale-chess-club”

This corresponds directly to the link above.

Jeremy Handley Memorial

Posted by Tim W on September 30, 2020

Steve’s email reporting the JH Memorial Match :

Dear members,
Just to let you know that Morpeth won the match 4-2. Both Tim and James Turner had to withdraw from the match, so Derek moved up to board 1 and board 3 was cancelled.

Dave’s result against a much stronger opponent was the standout performance for us, not least because he was supposed to have white and ended up playing black!
Thanks to all who took part or who would have taken part had there been an opponent for them.
Steve

North v South

Posted by fellman01 on September 6, 2020

An historic match between North and South was organised on chess.com by the ECF on September 5th 2020. It was the first time such a match had been played since 1893 and 1894, with the South winning on both occasions.

This time it was a 106 board affair, and Tynedale had 4 players taking part. Gary Murphy, on board 15, drew. Steve Larkin, on board 71, won. Jonny Kearney, on board 98, lost. And John Morgan, on board 101, won by default. Overall, the North emerged the winners by 61 to 45.

A great experience. Let’s hope it becomes an annual fixture.

(Thanks Steve – A Full Report is available on the ECF Website at North v South – Tim W)
