St Faith’s Comes Second at the Cambridgeshire Chess Championship

We are proud to announce that on Saturday 29th April 2017 the St Faith’s team, consisting of Adam, Amer, Josh, James, Dom, Alex P, Alex D, Aman, John and Lex (who unfortunately missed the final due to illness) finished in their best-ever position of second in the season’s Cambridgeshire Chess Championship.

The team went into the final round level on points with Cherry Hinton, and Kings B just 1.5 points behind. There was a small chance that we could finish in 4th place and miss out on the podium altogether.

Our boys played outstandingly under serious pressure and pulled off an incredible 5.5-0.5 win, and with Cherry Hinton only managing a 3.5-2.5 victory over Perse Prep, we snatched second place, behind Kings.

This was a great win and you can find the full results at: https://www.cambridgechess.co.uk/about-a88jd
