Win and a draw from the first games at our new venue

Kidsgrove's results continue to improve with a win and a draw in our first 2 home games at our new venue at Kidsgrove Cricket club.   We have also welcomed a new member which positive news. If we could attract one more regular player there would be a possibility of a "B" team next season. Grade would not be important, so anyone out there who fancies a challenge of playing chess please contact us. (All the latest results are on the link "NSDCA) )

Important . Loss of Venue

Unfortunately for Kidsgrove Chess Club our venue the Royal Oak has upgraded the room we use to expand the pub's business into to a restaurant.   This is with immediate effect. To those who have enjoyed the Real Ale the venue will be missed

The club wishes to thanks the Royal Oak for allowing the use of the room for the last 6 and a half years. We have always been welcome with no cost involved. We wish them well in their new venture.

The search for a new venue will now be underway. Our next home fixture is the 13/2/18. An update will be available once more is known.  There are 4 home fixtures to complete.

The new season is underway.  Kidsgrove C.C is pleased to welcome Brian Hitchins to the club. Brian has returned to playing in the league after a break of over 20 years. Brian marked his return with a win against Alsager.

Kidsgrove C.C continues to play in the 3rd division which is of a high standard and has obtained 1 draw from the first 4 games. However the margin of the defeats was narrow. Results will improve.

Roy Bennet Trophy. Kidsgrove CC Internal Competion Standings to 31st Jan 2017

See Latest. Still very open as the later stages approach!

2nd Half of the Season

Kidsgrove are still looking for their first Div3 win of the season. This is despite close games against on average a higher graded opposition . The six players available are certainly giving it their best shot.  (Results held on N.S.D.C.A link)

The club has almost completed it's first rapid play competition. The Simon Elliot " trophy took place over two nights . Unfortunately illness prevented its completion. Once outstanding games are completed the full results will appear. (Looking good for Rich so far!)
