The school chess competition is now five weeks old and tension is growing as it is tight at the top. All 44 players have earned badges, golden spots and some fabulous furry mascots!
Thomas leads the way, with a perfect 5 wins and 15 points. Close behind him, on 14, is Scarlett . The two meet in the next round! In close contention, are Zac (14), Luca (13), Haolin (13) and Max (13)
Success on the chessboard has resulted in no less than three players representing Northamptonshire at a recent Midlands tournament in Nottingham. Thomas, Zac and Max competed against three other counties and Max deserves special praise for competing against children three years older than himself.
Thanks for making Monday afternoons so much fun!
