With promotion, relegation and new teams entering the York Chess League, some teams need new players .

Stuart Acton writes ;
“Brigantes Chess Club are short of 2 or 3 players to play in the Evening league. We have 4 teams ( 2 playing
Thursday nights and 2 playing Mondays) and have the best venue in the league with excellent "real ales" on tap in
the bars, and our own spacious separate upstairs room.  Our club fees are only £5 year and no charge for juniors
and we  would welcome all players of whatever ability.   If any chess player, new to the area, would like to join
us you will be most welcome. Please contact Stuart on 01904 760885 or Email : or just come
along to our next club night on Monday 11th of July at the Brigantes Bar on Micklegate. We also have several fully
accredited CRB checked players who can ensure safety for any juniors.”


Following York RI Superknight's promotion from Division 2 to the top flight of the York Evening Chess League
Paul Masiak and his team are looking to recruit new players. If you'd like the opportunity to play League 1 chess,

Scarborough's second team play in Division 2 and they are considering travelling to York in just one car with 5 passengers.
Though this is a possibility, they're looking for a York local to play their Board 6.
