County goes for incremental time control for Worcestershire League in 2019-20

 

30 Jun, Andrew Farthing reports. Changes to league time controls approved at Annual meeting. After a long debate, new time controls were passed by a large majority. The proposal from Malvern was accepted: 60 minutes plus a 30-second increment per move from the outset, with a back-up available of a simple 90 minutes per player for the entire game (no intermediate time control) where digital clocks are unavailable. The 2019 league champions were Malvern and Halesowen C won Division 2 of the County League last season .

16 Jan. Worcester start 2020 well with a win against leaders Malvern, displacing them from the top.

8 Jan. Malvern celebrate the New Year with a good win against Olton and go into the top spot.

29 Nov. Halesowen beat Malvern making for an interesting tussle in the New Year.
