After a disappointing top of the table defeat to Stafford in their last chess match, the A team now have the chance to make up for it with the incentive of going back to the top of the league should they win against Walsall Kipping. Following Halesowen who we will have played 5 times by the end of the season, we will also be familar with Walsall Kipping.
Tonights match (Thursday 29th November) will be the 4th meeting between Walsall Kipping and Brewood this season. If history repeats itself, the match will be drawn as all 3 previous matches between the clubs this season have been drawn.
In the Humphreys Cup the knockout cup organised by the Wolverhampton Chess League the clubs were drawn against each other, and the 4 player match for each team was drawn 2-2, but for Brewood the match was lost on board count. With Walsall Kipping having a team in the Dudley Chess League Division 3, the clubs also faced each other in that, and that match was drawn 2-2 as well.
In the Wolverhampton Chess League Division 3, the B team met Walsall Kipping again, this time on a 5 match board the clubs again couldn't be seperated drawing 2.5-2.5 In fairness to Walsall Kipping last time out they defaulted board 5.
Walsall Kipping have 3 teams in the Wolverhampton Chess League, their A team is in division 1, and the B team is in division 3. They also have a C team in division 4. Last season the Walsall Kipping B team got relegated from Division 2, whilst the C team finished 2nd in division 4, but weren't promoted to division 3. As mentioned Walsall Kipping also have a team in the Dudley League Division 3.
Team news is unconfirmed, but it is likely that Brewood will play its strongest team possible. Derek Laight has a 100% record for Brewood so far this season and will be looking to keep up his good form. Lets hope we can put the defeat against Stafford behind us, and go top of the league again in the last match before Christmas for the A team.
