Manchester at the Junior Four Nations Chess League Telford 22/23rd April 2018

Posted by ian on April 23, 2018 at 11:40 AM Comments comments (0)

• Manchester sent three teams to play at Telford, including a girls’ team. The A Team and the Girls team came joint second alongside a Chess in Schools Team. The C team came 14th. This was all despite losing two players to chicken pox in the week before the event.

• Best scores were Ethan Gardiner , (Three C’s) (100%), Rachel Topping, (Bolton) (90%) but all the children played well. Sam Parry, Ivan Prikazcikov, Nethuli Saram, Bryony Eccleston Amrit Mishra, William Fairclough and Edward Jackson all scored 50% or better.

• A special word for Rowan Eccleston our six year old reserve who fought valiantly all weekend for his half point.

• A big thank you to all the parents who brought their children and looked after them over the weekend.

• Next year the Junior NCL moves to Peterborough and Manchester will again seek to enter teams. Expressions of interest to Julian Clissold, Manchester Junior Organiser (julian.clissold@outlook.com)

Eccles Chess Club have a new venue.

Posted by ian on April 12, 2018 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Monton Bowling Club, Hawthorn Avenue, Monton, Eccles M30 9NE. Some of you may recognize this as our home immediately prior to our switch to Eccles Liberal Club.

The directions to the Bowling Club are:

From the M602 Junction 2 roundabout, take Gilda Brook Road, towards Salford Royal Hospital.

At the second set of traffic lights (after about 30 yards), turn left into Half Edge Lane/ Monton Road.

After about a mile, you will see The Park public house on your right. The pub is at the corner of Monton Road and Hawthorn Avenue. Turn right into Hawthorn.

The entrance to Monton Bowling Club will be about 20 yards on your right. There is a sign, but the entrance is quite narrow and easy to miss.

Turn right into the entrance and follow the drive round.

To see a map of the venue, go to https://www.montonsocialandbowlingclub.co.uk

Please note that our two remaining Manchester League fixtures (Eccles 2 v Ashton Community 2 on 18 April and Eccles 1 v Denton 2 on 25 April) will take place at Monton Bowling Club.

If you have any questions about our move or the new venue, please let me know.

Regards

Matthew Pollard

President, Eccles Chess Club

Manchester Girls in the EPSCA Final

Girls from Manchester competed in the EPSCA Girls Under 11 National Final.

We fielded a very young team with only a few girls from year 6 and a number from years 3 and 4. So the result was very satisfactory.

Best result was Holly Durnian (Bolton School) who scored 3/3. Team pictured below.
