Great news!

Great news. Mr Laskey has agreed to pay the £15 entry fee for any child that qualifies for the Megafinal. The schools are very proud of how the children do in these competitions and want to show their continued support. Not sure how we will achieve this yet, I need to speak to the schools to find out.

Chess in Schools Results - 6 Qualifiers

Today we had a record entry of 68 for the latest Chess in Schools competition at Broadoak Community Centre in Ashton. This was also a qualifier for National Delancey Chess Competition.

Year 2 to 5 had to score at least 4 points out of 6 to qualify for the Megafinal at Saddleworth School at the end of April.

Year 6 unfortunately were placed in the advanced group (all play Manchester League Chess!) had to score 3 out of 5, Both Jacob and Adam played magnificently!

We had 6 qualifiers:

Lucy I, Alexia C and Ayaan I from St James’ (Ayaan playing well above himself to get 2nd place in the year 4 group).

Mustapha D, Ethan L and Maddison S from St Thomas’ (Mustapha won the year 5 competition, his first prize, Ethan came 2nd in the year 5 group). Year 5 made up the biggest group of players.

William HE, Dylan C, Lucy L and Austin B all missed out by 0.5 pt.

There is a Last Chance Saloon competition on the 17th March for those that just missed out for one final opportunity to reach the Megafinal.
