Our intrepid young chess players battled bravely against much older players as we managed to come second in our group that contained winners Cottesmore (all Year 8 players), Downland’s and St Richard’s (both with Year 8 and 9 players).

Amelie, Rafe and Arun all  scored 2 out of 3 points, with Taran 1 from 3. Although we drew 2-2 with Cottesmore, they beat St Richard’s 3 – 1 whilst we could only draw 2-2, so they won overall.
