Some minor corrections and a major update to directions to 3Cs home venue.

For the 2018-19 season 3Cs have taken another step forward by entering a team into the Junior 4NCL for the first time.
However, as several of the club's young players have previous played for Manchester in the event the club allowed them to continue doing so on the first weekend of this season's competition while instead forming a team comprising of their very youngest members so as to give them an early opportunity of competitive chess.
3Cs are in Division 2 of the Junior 4NCL and are by far the least experienced of all the competing sides in the league. However, the team - named the 3Cs' Charmanders - all contributed to a worthwhile venture for the club, including an outstanding victory against a side more than 35 FIDE points on average above them.
The first-ever 3Cs' team in the Junior 4NCL, shown with their Charmander mascot, are (l-r) Tim Ye, Alannah Ashton, Ben Newton, Lucas Chan.
For the benefit of the older generation, a Charmander is one of the characters from the Pokemon series.

Manchester entered three teams in the Junior 4NCL at Daventry 28/29th September.
Best overall result must be Thisumi Jayawarna of Heywood with 4.5/5 but everybody scored positively. Honourable mentions for Ethan Gardiner (Three C’s) who held his opponent (graded 177) to a draw in the last round and Rowan Eccleston (Bolton) who also scored 4.5.
The A team played in the A division and came joint 4th (7th on tie breaks) The B and C teams played in the second division and came 18th and 19th respectively. Most of our players recorded results at 50% or above.
Results can be seen at chess-results.com
It was good to see a Three C’s team in the B Division and perhaps we can collaborate over entries in the next match which is:
19/20th January 2019 in Solihull
