Six boys from Years 5-8 relished the opportunity to test their chess skills against Year 9 pupils at St Augustine’s last week. 

Despite the difference in age and experience levels, the boys were a very good match for their opponents and truly enjoyed each of the highly competitive games. 

The informal tournament was arranged by Year 8 pupil, Harrison, through a contact at his local chess club, Blackburn Crusaders. 

He headed up an excited team who are already looking forward to the next games, which we are hoping to arrange for the New Year.  Well done, boys! 

You all played extremely well and were a real credit to Oakhill.
