It's been a long time coming, but we have finally managed to beat Banbury in a match. No losses on board counts this time around and no messing around - Gary Jackson, Nathan Manley, Neil Staples, Nick Martin..... you boys took one hell of a beating!! Well, okay, it was the usual great atmosphere between the two clubs and Banbury were great sports as ever - as gracious in defeat as they were when they defeated us. True gentlemen, all of them! We are very proud of this win as it lifts us off ...

Blog update

Hi all, What can I say? I've been busy - playing chess and working on some work related stuff so I haven't had a chance to post much recently. http://blog.chess.com/timlawson/league-update You can find an update on my chess blog though! I've not included the two wins I've had in the Silver King League (Northamptonshire) because, quite frankly, you'd all think I was just blowing my own trumpet!! Well done to the A team for getting our first win of the season in division 1. I am confident i...

We lost 3-1 and should not have done. The captain is displeased, especially with himself and things have to improve or it's going to be a very long season! On the plus side, we just have to have a few nights where we all convert our nice positions instead of losing them. I've blogged a short report (on my blog).... See y'all next Wednesday - I'll be up for some half hour games..... Tim

C Team win!

C Team win!

Well done to Abbie, David and young Harry who triumphed 2-1 away to Banbury D in division 3. A great start to the season for the C team especially as Banbury and Daventry seem to have a great "friendly rivalry" going - somewhat of a local derby. Bragging rights are ours.... for now.....

2012 Leamington Jamboree

timlawson | Aug 27, 2012
Note your diaries if you are a member of Daventry Chess Club and would like to come along! The Annual Pre-Season Warm-Up Event: The LDCL Jamboree 2012 will be on 3rd September. Venue: Clarendon Arms, Kenilworth and start time of 7:30pm I understand the format will be the same/similar as previous years and you can gang up into teams of 2. I'll be going along and will either tag onto a team as I did last year or observe some fun chess! Are we getting excited about the new season yet?!
