CSC at the London Chess Classic

Five CSC Teesside juniors - Caitlin (captain), Chloe, Grace, Finlay and Tom - travelled up to London at the end of December to take part in the 7th London Chess Classic.

All played very well and Tom secured a silver medal following a particularly noteworthy performance.

I am hoping to present a lot more stories and photos from the event in the near future, but for starters here is Captain Caitlin making the ceremonial opening move for former World Champion Vishy Anand.

The expedition was made possible thanks to generous donations from the Michael John Norwood Memorial Trust, The Angus Lawson Memorial Trust, Chess in Schools and Communities, Ings Farm Primary School and Westgarth Primary School.
