[says] "It was night. I went home and put my old house clothes on and set the chessmen out and mixed a drink and played over another Capablanca. It went fifty-nine moves. Beautiful, cold, remorseless chess, almost creepy in its silent implacability." - Raymond Chandler, The High Window.

It's a pity that I have no individual statistics at this stage (apart from my own). For all games (Suffolk League, Norfolk/Suffolk Cup, u125) +8 =2 -2 [9/12 75%]. In future, so this site can be kept up to date,  would match captains email me the results of all matches to felixstowechess@lycos.com.

Division 1 standings

This division is organized differently from Division 2. In Division 2 there are two groups and each team plays each other team in it's group twice. Division 1, however, is a single round all pay all. When this is completed the top 4 teams than play a mini all play all, carrying through all the points collected from the previous round. As far as I am aware the following standings are complete up to the completion of the first round.

1st. Sudbury 'A' 19, 2nd. Ipswich 'C' 16, 3rd. Ipswich 'A' 16, 4th. Bury Cannons 14, 5th. Clacton 13, 6th. Ipswich 'B' 12, 7th. Ipswich 'D' 11, 8th. Adastral Park 9.

Norfolk/Cup Suffolk

Felixstowe lost at home to Ipswich 4-2.

Final: Felixstowe 1 Hadleigh 2 

Richard Grayburn 1 G. Jones 0

Garry Hemsworth 0 A. Sanderson 1

Dave Robertson D. Johnson

Mark Weidman 0 M. Hill 1    

A disappointing finale to the season for Felixstowe. After a loss on board 4 Felixstowe equalized with a comfortable win on board 1. The position on board 2 was roughly even and we were easily winning on board 3 - enough to decide the match in our favour. Unaccountably board 3 was eventually drawn and board 2 lost!!  A match we should have won  2-1 was lost by the same margin in the space of about an hour!
