Edinburgh 3 win the Allegro League with 35 points. Edinburgh 1 finished fourth with 29 points while Edinburgh 2 were 7th a further 2 points behind. The winning squad comprised: David Archibald, Ben He, Sam Gregory, Calum McGillivray and Mark Sanderson – with Calum scoring 10/13, Sam 9.5/13 and Ben 7/11. Shivan Murdochy scored 11/13 for Edinburgh 2.
The SNCL season ended with mixed fortunes. The first team finished second bottom in the top division and was relegated. The second team won the third division to gain promotion. So both teams will play in division 2 next year. Full results can be seen via the Chess Scotland website (go to leagues, then SNCL)
