In the historic setting of the Garstang Room, Hawkins, captained by Alex Bendall, duly defended their House Chess crown with a Grand Slam of victories over the other House Teams.

Drake narrowly held off Howard to finish second while a late brace of victories ensured Grenville finished ahead of Frobisher and a very youthful Raleigh Team.

Thank you to all participants for a hard-fought, but sporting tournament.  It reminded us that, what QEGS Chess may lack in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality.

Here’s to 2019!
