Limewood has reached the semifinal of the Arjay Cup for the 3rd year in succession. Tom Leah, Paul Johnson and Paul May (the same team make-up as last year) pushed aside the top team from Leeds club, with a win from Tom and draws from the two Pauls.
The semifinal will take place on 17 April.
Our 2nd Arjay team drew against Rose Forgrove, 1½ points each, but exit the Arjay Plate competition in accordance with the same rule (specific to the Arjay) that tripped up our 1st Team two years ago:
“5.1 If all games are drawn then the team carrying the lowest total (YCA) grade shall be the winners. Excluding the above, and in the event of the match being drawn, the winners will be decided by lowest board count.”
