21/04/21     The 4NCL Season 3 final tables have now been published. These confirm promotion for Hertford 1 and Hertford 2 and likely relegation for Hertford 3. Hertford 4 were a whisker away from the coveted 60th place that we worked so hard for, but I quite like the fact that we finished above Aberystwyth University 2.
Sincere congratulations to all who played and sincere thanks from myself and the Captains for being such a great squad to manage. We hope that you all enjoyed your time and games.

We had a great night on Tuesday in the penultimate round of the 4NCL. All four Hertford teams won. Well done especially to Hertford 4. That win has been a long time coming!
Hertford 1 have secured promotion to the 2nd Division. The final round on Tuesday 20th April will see them fighting the leaders in their group to secure a place in the play-offs.
Hertford 2 will be trying to gain their own promotion and Hertford 3 trying to avoid relegation! It’s going to be quite a night.

First of all, well done everyone who took part in the second HCO competition. Hertford won the U1800 and U1500 competitions and came second in the Open. Brilliant! Our best individual performances (not including the bonus points) were Mark Buswell with 4.5 out of 6, and Aaron Tuveri and Mike Humeniuk with 4 out of 6. A third competition is envisaged.

23/03/21    4NCL Online
Division 3 'Hertford 1' 2½ - 1½ 'Wantage A'. Hertford 1 keep up their challenge for promotion.
Division 6 'Crewe BOL' 2½ - 1½ 'Hertford 2'. Hertford 2 need good results in their last two rounds
Division 6 'Hertford 3' ½ - 3½ 'Shropshire 5'.
Division 7 'Hertford 4' 1 - 3 'Streatham C'. Will we win a match?

09/03/21     4NCL Online
Division 3 'Cork' 1½ - 2½ 'Hertford 1'
Division 6 'Hertford 2' 3 - 1 'Plymouth 2'
Division 6 'Hertford 3' 2 - 2 'Jan Luke's Cyberwarriors'
Division 7 'Uxbridge Fury' 3 - 1 'Hertford 4'

25/02/21     Another entertaining and informative Zoom event. This time Stephen took us from the opening into the middle game of a not-so-popular but quite sharp e4e5 set up. We were taxed with finding the best way forward, faced with some difficult move choices.

21/01/21     Thursday evening and 19 players turned up on Zoom for a 90 minute analysis from Stephen Swanson of a 1st Division League club game played by Paul Byway. This was a real treat with everyone enjoying it.
