NCA Plate Trophy

Posted by Tim W on March 17, 2015

The Tans may not have won last night at Gosforth, but we did pick up a trophy. This is the Northumberland Chess Association Summer Knock Out trophy, won last summer by Tynedale. I’ve been looking trough the records to see who played, and the team stalwarts were Derek Blair, Jeremy Handley, Steve Larkin and Phil Taylor, with cameo appearance by Tim Wrigley and Alex Ashworth. Steve Larkin produced a report about the final (Summer KO Plate Final Report) and I am now reproducing Dave Walshaw’s report about the earlier rounds.

The grades are the January ones, and therefore incorrect, leading to the top two boards playing out of order. Morpeth spotted this after the match but decided not to lodge a complaint on the grounds it was accidental.

Forest Hall B v Gosforth Regents

Kristian Mills was expected for Gosforth but a phone call established he wasn’t coming minutes before the start so their boards 3 and 4 moved up.

Rolf Millar beat Paul Costello

Jeff Baird drew Martin Beardsley

Mark Younger lost to Dave Baynes

So Forest Hall win 2.5 – 1.5 including default. No handicap applied

(Ed: no name supplied for Forest Hall B board 4 to claim the default)

Forest Hall B v Gosforth IV

The result was 2:2 which gives us a win on handicap, I think, but please see note below.

R Millar(133, black)  0.5-0.5 Ted Jarah(130,white)
J Bentham(125, white) 1-0 Bob Heyman(123, black)
J Baird(122, white) 0.5-0.5 Tony Neville(112, black)
M Younger(121,white) 0-1 Joe Chan(109, black)

As you can see, board three played the wrong colours so that we ended up with 3 blacks. It was a genuine mistake which I only noticed after the game, and their team captain (Jeff Bentham) didn’t spot either. Hopefully, you will decide that the result stands because the winners were disadvantaged rather than making us play the match again!

PLATE Semi Finals

Forest Hall v Tynedale

Martin Seeber(158) 0.5-0.5 Tim Wrigley(142)
Mike Smith(142) 0.5-0.5 Jeremy Handley(137)
Sophie Seeber(128) 0.5-0.5 Steve Larkin(125)
Keith Brooks(117) 0-1 Phil Taylor(125)

As both sides were intermediate teams, Tynedale won.

Tynemouth Warriors v Gateshead

Richard Oxnard(135) ½-½ W Noble(133)
Phil Jackson(124) 1-0 P Wells(133)
Dennis White(120) 0-1 P Mosse(131)
Dennis Beagrie(119) ½-½ P Johnson(113)
(493) 2-2 (510)

Tynemouth the lower rated team wins.
