Congratulations! DCCA Division 1 Champions

With 8 wins from 8 matches the South Shields ‘Galacticos’ have sewn up division 1 with 2 matches remaining. Their nearest rivals, Durham City ‘Bishops’ have 4 wins and a draw from 7 matches and can’t close the gap. Well done to the players and to the captain, Chris Sayers, for keeping his galacticos happy! Eat your heart out Jose Mourinho!

Congratulations are also in order for the South Shields C team for their giant-killing effort in NCA Division 2, beating Forest Hall C 3-2 despite being outgraded by an average of over 33 grading point per board. Well done, Colin, Gary, Mike, Ben and Jay.
