The 4NCL is expanding!

The 4NCL is delighted to announce that a fourth Division will be added to the league for the 2002/03 season. We hope that this expansion will enable more players of all ages and standards to enjoy participating in the UK's premier chess team competition.

Division 4 will be fought out by teams of 6 players, over 11 rounds. Wherever possible, the new Division will be played alongside the other divisions.

Unlike the top 3 divisions, there will be no stipulation for Division 4 teams to field a female player.

The dates for Division 4 are as follows:

Weekend 1
9th/10th November 2002
West Bromwich Moat House

Weekend 2
18th/19th January 2003
Telford Moat House

Weekend 3
8th/9th March 2003
Telford Moat House

Weekend 4
12th/13th April 2003
Telford Moat House

Weekend 5
24th/25th/26th May 2003
West Bromwich Moat House

The leading teams in Division 4 will be eligible for promotion to Division 3 for the 2003/04 season. Prize money will be announced shortly.

The cost of entering a team is 75 for new entrants (or 100 for 2nd, 3rd or 4th teams of existing 4NCL members). The deadline for receipt of entry fees and team lists is 31st August 2002.

Entries should be sent to :- Mike Truran (Finance Director) at The Old Farmhouse, 7 Church Street, Ducklington, WITNEY, Oxfordshire, OX29 7UA.
