The Second Division was won by BCCA Kings with an impressive +12; Division Three by Schach Dragons, also with +12; Division Four A by BCCA Tacticians with a massive score of +26, and Division Four B by BCCA Cavaliers with a similarly impressive score of +23.

Congratulations to all winning teams, members of Y Gweilch NiMo will each recieve an engraved trophy, and winners of the lower divisions will be entitled to promotion.

Season Six of this tournament will start in April 2020. There will be two significant changes to the format for Season Six; the playing cycle will be extended to 700 days, and the requirement to include two British players in each team will be reduced to one.
