Malpas Apprentices Win U1800 KO Cup Again

The Champions

For the second year running, Malpas Apprentices have won the WCU U1800 KO Cup!! Well done to Farhan, Harry, Steve V and Steve W who defeated North Cardiff 2.5 – 1.5.  Results below and all four games are now up on the games page in the Non-League section as usual. 


Board 1: Steve Williams    1-0      Robert Dineen
Board 2: Vince Williams  0.5-0.5    Steve Vickery
Board 3: Harry Duff        0-1      Simon Blackmore
Board 4: Ian Willison      0-1      Farhan Shataly 

After a lengthy battle, Malpas were tied at 1.5 points each. The remaining game was on board one and was heading for a draw – which would have lost Malpas their crown. 

Luckily for us, and after playing a solid game thus far, our North Cardiff opponent chose this moment to make a key mistake. Black to move…
