Chess excitement at Solefield

Mr Fenning, Director of Music

23rd February 2023

The last few weeks have been busy with chess matches. 

Firstly, in school, we took part in the Delancey UK chess challenge where nearly 80 boys from Y3-8 got a taste for a more formal chess tournament with paring cards. In the U9 category, our winner was Richard K and in the over 9s it was Freddie C. Boys who performed well will be invited to participate in the Megafinals next term.

Secondly, Year 3&4 had their first chess fixture against Sevenoaks Prep. In a 6-board match, Solefield managed to win 7-5 with 3 wins, one stalemate and two losses. Well done to the following boys for representing the school so well. 

Board 1, Richard K (Y3)
Board 2, Daniel L (Y4)
Board 3, Aalim S (Y4)
Board 4, Theo G (Y4)
Board 5, Oli F (Y3)
Board 6, Daniel H (Y3)
