Pittaway & Humphreys draw

Congratulations to all teams on their round 1 wins.

The semi final draw for the Pittaway Cup and Humphrey’s Trophy are as follows with the first named team in each pairing being at home:

Pittaway Cup Lichfield v Stourbridge; West Brom. v Stafford

Humphrey’s Trophy – Stourbridge v Halesowen; Brewood v Walsall Kipping

(Sorry Stafford and Walsall Kipping – two successive away matches though the same would have applied to your opponents had they been drawn second out of the hat!)

Please note that:

in both competitions you toss for colour on the night. Home clubs should contact their opponents within the next 14 days offering at least two alternative dates for the match. Teams should let me know what match date has been agreed a.s.a.p. Ungraded players cannot play in the Humphreys Trophy competition unless prior approval has been obtained from me following submission of supporting evidence.
the last date for submission of semi-final results to me (by both teams please!) is 6th February 2016. Please show which team had white on odd boards. I envisage that the deadline for the final will be mid-April.

The competition rules can be found in the League’s handbook and also on the League’s website here.

Best wishes and good luck in your matches.
