On Saturday 6th March we held the Annual County Cub Chess
Competiton hosted by Stretford District at St. Matthew’s Church
The Cubs had a fantastic afternoon, visiting the ‘Tuck Shop’,
playing Chess and also visting Chess websites. They played
several rounds and kept going throughout the afternoon and whilst
the final results were being compiled they were able to watch two
of adjuicators play a speed game – I know that there was no way I
could even keep up with what was going on but the Cubs knew and
were able to watch and learn.
The Results were –
Altrincham & District 33½ points; Sale & District 24
points; Swinton & Pendlebury District 20½ points; Wigan
District 18½ points; Stretford District 18 points; Urmston District
Our thanks go to Alan Roberts and his team who organised the
Next year this event is due to be hosted by the Wigan Metro.
