Strandtown Chess Academy

The final of the knockout cup was played this week with Anna Clatworthy facing off against Patrick McEvoy.

 In a closely fought game Anna eventually triumphed making her the winner of this inaugural event.

One of the features we have each week at Strandtown is the player of the week award and this was recently won by Bradley Gillespie.
