It’s all gone South for Shields

Posted by Checker on March 20, 2012

South Shields’ fleeting visit to Division 1 is over. They were unable to hold their promotion-winning team together beyond a couple of early-season draws, and their new-look side have had an unfortunate tendency to lose matches 5-0. The club have a good record of attracting newcomers to league chess, and hopefully their most recent arrivals will find Division 2 a more forgiving environment in which to hone their skills.

Above them, Morpeth B look like needing a win and draw from their remaining fixtures against Gosforth Empire and Tynemouth Hobbits, if they are to avoid the same fate.
