Colchester A finished 4th (6 wins, 1 draw, 3 defeats) with their best results being 4-0 wins against Braintree and Billericay.

Colchester B finished in 6th place (with 5 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses). Their best results were a surprise 3-1 win against Writtle A and a 4-0 win against Billericay. Again there were lot of strong individual results; the B team scored more than 50% on boards 2 and 3.

|Board 1 (Total 10/20)|
|Board 2 (Total 10.5/20)|
