Today we had the first chess competition of the school year at Broadoak Community Centre, Ashton
There was an excellent turnout of 60 children of which we contributed 11 (all boys as it appears a number of the girls were involved with Harvest Church services).
As usual all of the children performed brilliantly, behaved perfectly and all of them seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.
We also had some success.
Jacob Hunt (5 wins out of 6) – 2nd place overall
Lawrence Moustafa (5 wins out of 6) – 3rd place overall.
William Hardman-Elliott (4.5 out of 6) – if he had won his last game he would have won the tournament.
Mustapha Dia and Jack Horsfall (4 out of 6) – Jack’s highest score so far
Ayaan Iltaf and Patrick Shaw (3.5 out of 6) – again both achieved their best scores to date.
Adam Hamer, Ethan Lancaster, Alex Hollingworth and Dylan Crothers (all 3 out of 6).
Thankyou as always to the parents for supporting the event.
Next competition, back to a Saturday,18th November.
