The Hastings and St Leonards chess club is in danger of not running a first-team in the mid Sussex league or Kent league this season
this is due to the fact that nobody has come forward to run these teams
should this situation remain it will mean that the top six players of the club will get no league matches this season
team entries need to be submitted no later than 13 September if nobody has come forward by that time we will not be entering top teams in either Sussex Kent leagues
if you wish to help out by running a dream please contact me no later than Wednesday evening either by telephone (01424) 436313 or by e-mail at Bryant8830@Yahoo.co.UK
