Thanks go to Terri and Hannah of The Buffs Chess Club for making the draw – and also to Sean Marsh acting as witness to the proceedings.
The CCA is sad to announce the passing of yet another of our members and so close to Christmas again.
Kevin McGrother, a member of The Buffs club, passed away suddenly last Thursday.
Some of you may not know Kevin as he had only joined The Buffs club around three years ago and joined CCA for the first time last season. Although taking up the game in later life he was one of the keenest and most enthusiastic members I have ever met, giving much support to both The Buffs and CSC’s sessions at Stockton library.
Once again our condolences go out to his family on this normally ‘joyous’ time of the year.
The CCA regrets to announce the sad news of the passing of Andre Pasztor.
Andre was a member of Middlesbrough club and CCA for nearly 30 years and his warm and enthusiastic greetings I’m sure will be missed by many.
Funeral to take place at 11AM on Thursday 27th December, St. Bede’s chapel, Teesside Crematorium.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family at this sad time.

To all team captains whose clubs have teams in both the Jeremy Burnett Plate and The Tom Wise K.O. cup.
Now is a good time to remind you all that the deadline of Jan 18th 2019 for the initial matches to be played is fast approaching.
Seems far away, right? Not really. When you consider we are just entering what is probably the busiest time of the year socially and in work related matters it soon becomes apparent that time is passing us by.
The chess calendar is also already very busy. Then we should consider the weather, There could be league matches that have to be postponed and rearranged, all taking up valuable calendar space. If you have already arranged a date for your matches, I thank you, if not, now really is a good time.
Sean Cassidy. CCA Match Organiser.
The league tables are now up to date. Many thanks to Keith Smith for carrying out the necessary amendments.
