Somerset Chess News (2019-20 Season)

24/09/2019 - WECU Jamboree. Devon and Somerset fielded two teams each for the WECU Jamboree with the Devon teams being far too strong for a weakened Somerset. Devon won the Open section 9.5 - 2.5 and the graded section 8.5 - 3.5. Thanks are due to Matt Turner and Millfield for their excellent hosting and to Guy Greenland for his efforts in putting together two Somerset teams. Let's hope that players are more supportive for the next round of County matches starting on October 5th.
