Newport League Fixtures 2012-2013

This just in from Ron:


Dear All,
I attach the Newport League Fixtures 2012-13.  Please let me know asap if you have any queries or foresee any problems. 
Pontypool have provided me with details of their team captains and,of course, i have this information for Malpas.  I should be grateful if Abergavenny, Cwmbran and Newport would provide me with the names and contact details (telephone and email address) for the captains of each of their teams.
Best wishes for an enjoyable season,

MCC Squads 2012-2013


Malpas Chess Club Squads for the 2012/2013 Season

Please note that although these are primary squads it is expected to be commonplace for players to be approached by the captains of other teams about their availability to play for that team, even in other divisions. It is also expected that in such instances the “borrowing” captain will have agreed this with the “lending” captain in advance, i.e. to ensure that there no rule infringements and/or to ensure that this does not affect the player’s ability to play for their primary team later in the season.
