Lavishly backed Guildford expected to cruise to 4NCL league title - Leonard Barden

 

10.4.15 - Britain’s 4NCL league heads for its final weekend next month with Guildford set to win by a distance. The battle at the top has always been partly financial, as backers of rival teams fly in grandmasters from across Europe for key matches.

 

But this season Guildford are way ahead in the sponsorship stakes, a Chelsea or Manchester City equivalent facing moderately bankrolled rivals. The effect was highlighted in last Saturday’s Guildford v Oxford match, where the Surrey club’s rating average of 2533, middling GM level, was around 360 points higher than the mixture of academics, juniors and locals who took to the board for the Dark Blues.
