Ulster Chess Union - Welsh Chess Union

Friendly Match played at Bridgend on the weekend of 27th-28th October 2001.

The result in this Match is now confirmed as a win for Wales by 14 points to 13. On Day 1 the Welsh won 7.5 to 4.5 plus three games forfeit (though the Welsh have decided not to claim those games) due to travel difficulties encountered by some of the Ulster team. The Ulster team fought back on Day 2 scoring particularly well on the top Boards to win by 8.5 to 6.5. Leading the way on Board 1 was IM Brian Kelly who defeated James Cobb in both their games while David Houston, Tom Clarke, Paul McKeown and Jonathan Harvey all scored 1.5 out of 2.
