Sussex County Contract Bridge Association
National Success

An abbreviated report this month as some events (Crockfords and the NICKO) have not yet started.


The new season is under way in the Gold Cup.  Hobden (x2, Denny, Poulter) are already into R2, and the Sussex-linked teams hoping to join them are Lee (Scoltock, Burn, Fedrick, Leslie, Hansen) and Swanson (Ford, Chisnall, James).  Mitchell (Clinch, Jepson, Clifton) - who lost to the Soper team from Kent - and Linfield (x2, Morris, Curtis) who succumbed to Hobden, enter the Silver Plate.


In the Gerard Faulkner (seniors KO) Clinch (Dickson, Jepson, Ryder, Watts), Swanson (Ford, Chisnall, James) and Telfer (Vince, Burns, Hegan) all won to advance to R2; Franklin (Carrington, Pool, Stanford) is in the R1 repechage.


Only two Sussex teams entered the Hubert Phillips this year, Mitchell (Clinch, Jepson, Clifton, Watts) and Hobden (x2, Smallwood, Caplan), and they were drawn together in round 1.  Mitchell emerged victorious and after another good win are into R3 where they will play Chapman.  Hobden have entered the Plate competition and play Smart in the third round.
