The semi-final at home to Walsall Kipping was an eventful affair.  The match result was 2-2, with Walsall Kipping having the lower board count on a tiebreaking method, which would have meant that Walsall Kipping would have gone through to the final. 

Here is the full match card: 

Board 1:  John Fenby (129) (Black) 0-1 Lukasz Marcin Walijewski (132) (White)

Board 2:  Mike Jarocki (122) ½-½ David J Friend (121)

Board 3:  Mark Binfield (112) 1-0 Richard Wilkinson (119)

Board 4:  David Blower (105) ½-½ Kevin J Moore (103)

Total:  Brewood 2-2 Walsall Kipping

Board Count:  Brewood 3-1 Walsall Kipping

However, it emerges that Walsall Kipping play an ineligible player on board one who was too highly graded for the competition. 

Therefore, although the results stay the same to be sent in for ECF grading, for the match result purposes a win on board one for Walsall Kipping, is awarded as a win on board one for Brewood, meaning that Brewood win the match 3-1 and progress to the final of the competition.
