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.
