4NCL Congress at the Old Swan Hotel 6-8th January

Four Harrogate players took part in the 4NCL Congress at the Old Swan Hotel this weekend. The best performance came from Matty Ward who scored an outstanding 3 1/2/5 in his first competitive event for over twenty years, finishing level with Michael Johnson (Matty and Michael played in the last round). Andrew Zigmond scored 2/5 and David Halpin, also making a return to competitive play, scored 1/5.

The tournament was a great success with numbers ahead of expectations and hopefully this means that the 4NCL will return to Harrogate in 2018. It will return to the Old Swan even sooner when Castle Chess bring their next Congress there in May.
