Pittaway Cup Mega Final: Last year our team travelled to Stourbridge to play a strong Halesowen side who'd just been promoted from WDCL Div 2 to 1. This year we play last year's Pittaway Cup Final hosts Stourbridge. This year Stourbridge A have also been promoted from WDCL Div 2 to 1. Last year our team lacked some of our regular A team players. This year's Pittaway Cup Final may be a titanic battle. Can Wolverhampton retain the Pittaway Cup? April 21 2010 Bushbury Chess Club is a date for your chess diaries. May the Best team win!

10/12/09 Well done to our WDCL A team for beating West Bromwich. Our bottom 2 boards fell to the visiting team so we were trailing behind. Frank Wood(Cap) drew on board 4 and this proved crucial to secure the win as our top 3 boards Mike Townsend, John Mangdwende and Phil Porter all triumphed. Frank's team are in action again next week playing St George's. Let's hope we emulate this weeks success and may the best team win. Happy Christmas everyone.
03/12/09 A busy night for our club with 3 matches to play. Frank's Dudley league Div 1 team achieved 2 draws on boards 1 and 2 but lost match 2 of their debut season at Warley Quinborne. Our Div 3 team played host to the Warley Quinborne Div 3 team and they also narrowly beat Wolverhampton.
Gordon's WDCL B team played Rushall B in the 2nd home match of the evening. Max won by default, Dave Wightman notched up another win and remains undefeated. Gordon and Richard lost on 3 and 2. Paul Walters faced a tricky and complex endgame but played it well and built on a time advantage. A draw was declined by the Rushall player but soon after time pressure led to a mistake and so Paul gained the full point we needed to win the match. Well done team and thanks to Rushall for another great battle. Wolverhampton B 3 Rushall B 2. A nice victory following the previous emphatic loss to Rushall A.
30/11/09 BDCL A draw at S Birmingham. Well done all on this great result.

23/11/09 Our WDCL B had a tough match against Rushall A and lost 4-1 Away. David Wightman scored the only win of the night and remains undefeated this season on 5/5. Dave is an early contender for AGM trophies but can any of our members catch up?
12/11/09 Two home matches: Well done to our WDCL B team for beating visitors Bushbury. Our Dudley Div 2 team faced an unbeaten Boldmere St Michael's. Our team wasn't up to usual strength due to players supplementing our WDCL B but some good battles. Board 1 was close and Paul was optimistic about his position but low on time and blacks bishop pair trained on the white king.
