Grand-master Danny Gormally, the recently crowned English Rapid Play Champion visited Malpas on Sunday October 8, and played an exhibition match in the Jubilee Hall, against 14 opponents from Cheshire, Shropshire and North East Wales simultaneously.

He beat 13 of his opponents, and drew one, to Charles Lowick Higgie, after which Danny entertained some of his opponents with interesting anecdotes about his life as a Grand master.

The Club currently runs four teams — a first team in Division 1 of both the Chester 7 District and Wirral Chess Leagues, a team in Division 3 of the Chester & District League and a team in Division 4 of the Wirral chess League.

The club is keen to hear from people wanting to learn, play or improve their game.
For further details contact Charles Higgie at higgiecharles@gmail.com or telephone 01948 860083 or 07981074373.

The club are holding a fund raising bingo session on Wednesday November 29 at The Old School Tea Rooms, Church Street, Malpas, by kind permission of Mrs Gemma Moon.
