This section will be for the kids in terms of hints and tips to make them better players. Watch this space!
CSC Chess Congress Sat 20th July - 5 signed up
So far we have 5 signed, William Hardman-Elliott, Ethan Lancaster, Jess Caton, Oliver Cheshire and James Travis for the Ashton chess competition on Sat 20th July. Please let know if your child is available and wants to play. I will be there on the day.
St Thomas v St James 2019 - St James win for the first time
Final scores St James' 85.5 to St Thomas' 69.5. Well done to St James' who won the trophy for first time.
Link to my website for the detail of today.
Sholver and Moorside Community Club - Great Start!
Massive thankyou for all those that turned up this evening. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. 10 is a really good start and hopefully we can build on that next week. I will need one or two more to make it viable as I want to keep costs down to a minimum.
Great to have a couple of parents who improved massively through the session and are already chess players and a couple of ex St Thomas' pupils.
Well done to William Hardman-Elliott on winning our first mini competition.
Obviously a bit chaotic in week 1 when you have no idea who will turn up but hopefully it will be more structured next week.
St James' Class Results - the benefit of chess club!
St James yr3 class competition now complete.
Well done to James Cooper on winning the trophy scoring 5 out of 5 all with checkmate.
James Travis came 2nd (silver medal) with 4 (all checkmates) out of 5 only losing to James.
Jess Caton came 3rd (bronze medal) also with 4 out of 5, 3 of which were checkmates again only beaten by James in the final round.
Each of these 3 go to after school chess club
Unfortunately Oliver Cheshire wasn't in so missed the opportunity to get into the top 3. His bye wasn't quite enough.
Slow starter went to Ethan Birchenall after losing his first two and then staying unbeaten in his final 3 games.
Next up school challenge St Thomas's v St James Thurs 13th June.
