Jonathan Tuck Reports on Last Sunday’s match vs East Grinstead Bookshop;

This afternoon 10 more SJC juniors representing Crowborough online club and East Grinstead Bookshop had the opportunity to play over the board chess at an historic venue.

The match took place across the board in 2 separate rooms. This was the second successive Sunday match between the two teams. 

Each board was separated by an acrylic screen and players were 1 metre plus apart in a well ventilated room.

Once again the match was played in perfect match conditions and in an excellent spirit with Crowborough prevailing in the closest of contests.

John Pye, the Bookshop owner, was warmly thanked for ensuring this was such a special occasion for all the juniors and their parents.

Unfortunately due to the National Lockdown

This Series of matches with the Bookshop is now suspended – sorry to everyone who had shown an interest in playing.
