Even bringing in Ian Rogers was not good enough for the AD's in the top division of Britain's pro chess league. It is a mark of the growing strength of the 4NCL that a team with 4 GM's should be relegated, although I doubt if they managed to play all of them all the time.

The AD's traditionally were created around the British Chess Magazine and ex-Pres of the BCF David Anderton and his Walsall chess club, of whom IM Robert Bellin and WGM Jana Bellin were members.

One of my friends, Anne-Marie James got promoted to division 1 with the Bristol team, who have amongst their stars veteran US IM James Sherwin:)
