Uphill fight

13 April 2016 It was always going to be an uphill fight.  We were playing Moortown B.  They are top of the table, promotion already secured, a full 8 points clear of their nearest rivals.  They have won every one of their matches this season.  Their team grades for the match ran from 141 down… Continue reading »


6 April 2015 Limewood scored a valuable and unexpected draw in a brillant performance against promotion-chasing Copperworks at the Fox and Grapes. Copperworks outgraded us at every board – overall by a total of something like 150 points.  And the result?:  Limewood scored a win by Paul and 3 draws, from Philip, Andy and Gareth,… Continue reading »

Sing it loud: 4½ to ½!

16 March 2016 Limewood racked up their best team performance since the dawn of time itself.  We beat Rose Forgrove F by 4½ points to ½.  That was made up of 3 wins over-the-board, 1 draw and 1 win by default.  We believe it is the first-ever match in which we have not lost a… Continue reading »

Paul saves the day

24 February 2016 Paul May saved the Club’s collective blushes by salvaging a hard-fought draw against Alwoodley’s John Hipshon.  He was the only member of either of our two Mini League teams to score at all against the tough opponents.  But with the additional benefit of 2 handicap points (under the Mini League rules) his… Continue reading »

Limewood turn the tables – almost

17 February 2016 Limewood beat Alwoodley D in their Division 3 League match by 3 points to 2, almost (but not quite) reversing the scoreline of their defeat by that team back in October.  Admittedly we were helped by Alwoodley being unable to field a full team but we won 2 of the 4 games… Continue reading »

3rd Round of the ‘Individuals’

10 February 2016 A quartet from the Club once again trooped off to Alwoodley to compete in the ‘Individuals’, as the Ellis and Appleby Trophies are commonly known. It was the 3rd round. The question on eveyone’s lips was whether Philip May would maintain his 100% success record in the Appleby. Alas, the answer was… Continue reading »
