For too long we have let the basketball, the hockey and the rugby players dominate the headlines: we all know St. Conleth’s is really a chess school! Well, opening gambits have been played, and we have the first news of the season: Mr. Carvill The Younger has done his due diliogence, said ten ‘Hail Dr. Tonys’ and moved the boards outside for the start of the Annual St. Conleth’s Chess tournaments. And this covidy action has had an added side benefit: some of these kids have only seen the cold light of Gameboys and calculator watches since the lockdown began! So, chess al fresco it is and the competition and the fresh air will do these cave trolls some good! Stay tuned as the results roll in and the swagger starts!
