24 May: Southbourne C secure promotion place and championship with 3-1 win v Bournemouth B in B&D 3

Bournemouth & District Chess League
Just one league match remains in B&DCL - B&D 5 High Milton v Wimborne F. High Milton is a combined team between New Milton and Highcliffe. Well done to all B&D Captains and their teams for making this an excellent competitive season. There has been some great chess and the league tables show how close it has been. Only New Milton B, in B&D 4, won 7 matches. No matches were defaulted.



25 May: 2 matches at Tuckton last night to bring proceedings to a close in both B&D 3 & 4.

B&D 3 has been remarkably close all season, with 5 teams recently in with a promotion chance, but very well done to Southbourne C who finished as champions after their win against Bournemouth B. Ringwood B finished as runners-up.

John Harris has written an interesting and informative report on B&D 4 Southbourne D 2 Wimborne E  2, another close division
