The fixtures for the 2012-2013 season have been published, with both Shrewsbury B and C teams starting the campaign at home.
Shrewsbury C kick off the new season with three consecutive home games, against Wellington B, Telepost D and Newport C in a new-look third Division that, with the addition of two new teams this summer, has gone from the smallest of the divisions to the largest with 9 teams.
The B team kick off their promotion challenge with a home game against Telepost C before a lengthy trip to recently relegated Ludlow in the second match. They will close the season with a tough double header against Priorslee Lions B and Wellington A.
Meanwhile the A team’s title challenge begins on the road, with a trip to Priorslee on the opening day followed up with another trip to Telford against Shifnal and Telford A.
The full league fixtures can be found on the Shropshire Chess website, and the season’s fixtures for solely each of the Shrewsbury teams can be found on their respective pages on this website.
Shrewsbury Chess Club has confirmed that its Annual General Meeting will be hosted at the Club’s venue at the Training Suites for the Shelton Hospital on Friday 7th September, starting at around 7:45PM.

Francis Best has secured victory in this year’s Shrewsbury Club Championship with a draw in the final round against Dan Lockett. Best’s score of 4/5, without having lost a single game, leaves him a full point and a half ahead of the rest of the field with most players having one round left.
