Today I presented books to three G&T chess players at Ings Farm Primary School.
Finlay has been a strong player for two years and has many chess successes to his name. His most recent achievement was to qualify for the Manchester Gigafinal.
Charlie dominated his class at Ings Farm this year and scored highly at both the Teesside Megafinal and Teesside Individual Chess Championships.
Eleanor has worked very hard throughout the year and played exceptionally well in a number of tournaments. Last weekend she shared the title of Under-9 Teesside Girl Champion. The second book in the photo is one of her prizes from that event, for which she waited very patiently as we did not have quite enough to present on the day!
