It was wonderful to welcome players from schools throughout the north of England to take part in our HMC Chess competition.
It was the biggest turnout in recent history with 130 players attending and there was some superb play on display. The competition was organised into U9 and U11 sections, with QEGS entering 2 x U9 teams and 4 x U11 teams. The boys performed well and worthy of particular note were Vishvan S who won 5 out of his 6 games, and Eddie B and Eisa M won 4.5 out of their 6 games.
Both the U9 A and U11 A teams finished 3rd – well done to everyone who took part.
