Hastings and St Leonards Chess Club

Have your say

Club secretary Ken Lucas has continued his recent good form by winning the first of the club’s summer tournaments to finish, the Winser Trophy, a knock-out event: he overcame Mason Woodhams in the Final.

The club’s home friendly against GLC the other week was slightly marred by a no-show from each tea, which reduced the match to 6-a-side.

It was something of a stroll for the home team, who outgunned their opponents. Final score was 5-1. There were wins from John Sugden, Ken Lucas, Keith Hossack and Peter Bedborough, draws from Ray Brooks and Mason Woodhams.
