Teams News

The Chichester boys (Mike Campbell/David Telfer and Gerry Hegan/Peter Maclarens) have had mixed results in the NICKO and Sussex Plate.  In the NICKO they were narrowly beaten by a strong East Sussex team in the 4th round in a match that went right down to the last board.   They just missed out on an exciting tie in the next round as the team that beat them now play Sally Brock's seeded team.

In the Sussex Plate semi final they faced the Smallwood/Lucioni team.  The aforementioned pair won the South East pairs competition this month so it was always going to be a very tough match.  In a 28 board match the Chichester boys were 20 imps down after 7 boards and 51 imps down at the half way stage.  The match looked to be all but over but staging the greatest comeback since Lazarus they won the 3rd and 4th quarters each by 31imps to win by 11imps and gain a place in the final.  We wish them lots of luck in the final.
