5th Appleby Primary School Chess Competition


The 5th Appleby Primary School Lightning Championships took place on Sunday 28th February at St.Michaels School.  All games were on the buzzer with players having to make alternate moves every 5 seconds so a very difficult but also entertaining form of chess.  There were 40 boys and 10 girls competing for the top prize where all competitors played 12 games each against different opponents and the overall winner was the current under 9 island champion, Joshua Moulson, who managed to impressively win 11 games out of 12, winning 11 games and losing only 1 game to Mateuz Kolin.  There were a number of competitors representing St Michael's school, including William Allen and Monty Weaver.
