Exceptionally this season, the competition is open to games played on the internet. (A vote to that effect has been taken by Shropshire Chess Association).

The prize is a trophy for the best game by a Shropshire player in any competition anywhere during the season (does not include blitz or non-competitive games).

Please spread the word, especially if you see somebody who has played a corker.

Entries i.e. scoresheets with details of the opponent and the competition (feel free to annotate the game too if you feel like it) to me, Toby Neal – at

If you know how, please send scoresheets in pgn format, because this means they can be posted in a play-overable form on the website.

The winning game will be chosen at the end of the season, probably by an ad hoc judging panel. 

Closing date for entries will be announced nearer the time because of the current uncertainties, but is likely to be around the end of May.
