Aprils Childrens Chess

Top players attended the April Childrens Chess at Methodist College. We had Candidate Master Karina Kruk (Current Irish Womans Champion), Gavin Melaugh from Derry (Previous Irish under 8 Champion).

Children enthusiastic about the game of chess came together at Methodist College to play in the monthly tournaments organised jointly by the Ulster Schools Chess Council and Ulster Chess Union. These are coming to an end for this Academic year. The final event being Mega-Final on 11th May. Followed by the 3 day chess summer school in August.

Its brilliant to see so many youngsters enjoying the game of chess. We welcome anyone to play. - watch this site for next years timetable of events.

The primary players were put the question could they beat the excellent player Gavin Melaugh. The answer no. Gavin won all his games scoring a well deserved 5 out of 5.
