ECF stage round up

The return of OTB county chess at the ECF stage level has been marked by a majority of counties’ progressing without play. Overall, 7 matches have been played, but there were 7 byes to the semi-finals and 5 matches have been conceded without play.

Three of the four Essex teams have reached the semi-finals with the U2050 team having progressed to the Final. The one Essex casualty is the U1650 side who were well-beaten by Warks 8½-5½.

For Essex, there is a commonality of opposition from Yorks and Notts, though Essex U2050 have already reached the Final when Notts conceded their semi-final without play. The SCCU has a presence other than Essex in each semi-final with a second SCCU finalist guaranteed in the U1450 with a Surrey v Kent semi-final.
