10th CSC Teesside Team Tournament

The 10th CSC Teesside Team Tournament took place at Fairfield Primary School this week.

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.

Final Scores

=1st: Fairfield A, Throston

3rd: Westgarth

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.

Throston Triumphant!

Throston, one of our original CSC schools from 2010 (as are Westgarth) have now won the tournament four times, which is a record.
