Following on from our report on the 10th CSC Teesside Team Tournament, Fairfield have now sent me pictures of their two teams.
This was the first time Fairfield had hosted a chess event and it was their first-ever team victory. A very impressive debut!

This was the first time we have held this event since 2019, so it was very good get the tournament back on track after the lockdown years.
Fairfield A were in the lead after the first of the two Jamboree rounds, but in a dramatic finale, former champions Throston pulled out all of the stops to catch them up.
Defending co-champions couldn't extend their magnificent run of three consecutive victories but I am sure they will be preparing hard to fight back next year.
=1st: Fairfield A, Throston
4th: Fairfield B
All players received medals, courtesy of CSC. The winning teams received trophies too.
Fairfield, who came on board CSC in September (having only previously had chess sessions from me, back in 1988-9) played their first-ever school matches and the expert tutoring skills of Jo Hutchinson have already turned them into champions.
2011: Ings Farm and Throston
2012: Ings Farm and Billingham South
2016: Sacred Heart
2019: Westgarth and Billingham South
