Congratulations to 13-year old Declan Shafi of Castlehill CC who beat Ian Brownlee of Lanark CC in the national final.

From what I have heard the game was entertaining and played in a competitive and sporting spirit. If I can get a copy I'll post it here.

The Nancy Elder tournament remains alive and kicking

Thanks go to Stirling Chess Club for hosting the game.

Well done Declan. Deffo was a good turn out for the Elder this season.

Has the MacIssac final been played, and who is in it?

The MacIsaac final will be between Elaine Bamber and Alistair Maxwell and has been arranged for tonight. Watch this space
