Brewood are also in the Humphrey's Trophy Final this season, which is ran by the Wolverhampton Chess League. Having being drawn away in the Quarter-Final against Rushall and being outgraded on every board, and despite being a player short for the match, Brewood drew the match 2-2 and got through on a tiebreaking method.
In the semi-final Brewood were at home to Walsall Kipping. After a 2-2 draw, which would have seen Walsall Kipping through to the final via a tiebreaking method, it was discovered that Walsall Kipping played an ineligible player on board 1, and thus board 1 was awarded to Brewood, meaning that we won the match 3-1.
The final is at a neutral venue on a date yet to be arranged. We will be playing against Stourbridge after Stourbridge won their semi-final against Halesowen 2½-1½.
David Blower commented: "Obviously I am looking forward to the final. We know that it will be a tough match against Stourbridge, who are still unbeaten against us this season, and are sitting top of division 3. There are no easy games in chess, but we just need to make sure we play the game and not the occassion.
We must also make sure that we do not get distracted by the cup runs we have had, and that we keep our focus on the bread and butter in the league campaign."
The website will be further updated once details of the match arrangements are known.
