On November 18th three teams of four players met at Hatton Hill School for a chess challenge competition.
Under the watchful eyes of chess tutors Andrew Legge and Bob Clark the three schools played a double round challenge using mixed pairings.
The tutors were very impressed both by the standard of play of the children, and also by the sportsmanship and behaviour of the children who were all a credit to their schools.
The competition was very close and was only decided when Luke Maher from Netherton Moss won the last game to finish leaving the final scores as follows:
Netherton Moss 5 pts
St William of York 4 pts
Hatton Hill 3 pts
As well as Luke, Alex Griffiths from Netherton Moss and Josh Kershaw from St William of York won both their games, while Ruby Gill from Hatton Hill had the distinction of winning the first game of the event to finish.
The battle then continued on Tuesday at Netherton Moss and we were delighted to once again finish top of the table!
We wish all teams the best of luck for the rest of the competition.
