The results for the Exeter & District League for the 2017/2018 season can be found here.

Seaton entered a team on Sunday 29th October 2017 in the DCCA Team Blitz. This is a 6 round tournament with teams of 4 and 12 minute time control for all moves. The event was very well attended with 15 teams entering and a strong field including IM Jack Rudd playing board 1 for Bideford. Despite an early promising start with a 4/4 victory first round, the team faded somewhat in later rounds. Full results can be found here.
