MAC­CLES­FIELD Chess Club’s A team may have been rel­e­gated when they lost their fi­nal game of last sea­son’s Stock­port League, but they’ve shown great de­ter­mi­na­tion to bounce back at the first at­tempt.

With six matches of the new sea­son played – all won – they topped Di­vi­sion Two by seven points ahead of the Christ­mas pe­riod.

Re­sults have in­cluded 6-0 and 4-2 wins against Den­ton, 3.5-2.5 against Marple, 5.5-0.5 against Stock­port, 5-1 against East Cheshire and 4-2 against Al­trin­cham.

Top board Robert Shaw has won all his games, as have Phil Cat­ter­mole and cap­tain John-Paul Tay­lor.

Mac­cles­field also cruised into the semi-fi­nal of the Charn­ley Cup with a con­vinc­ing win against Wilm­slow.

In the Stoke League, last sea­son’s cham­pi­ons cur­rently oc­cupy third place but are only a point off the lead­ing teams from Ched­dle­ton.

They drew with New­cas­tle, lost to one of the Ched­dle­ton teams but beat the other and have a win over Holmes Chapel.
