Abigail wins County Chess Championship
Abigail Hannan (7.2) won the Under 13 Girls’ section of the UK Chess Challenge Megafinal in Boston on Sunday 11th March. She had to play against six other girls from the county and I’m sure everyone in the LSST Chess Club, who knows what a formidable opponent Abigail is, feels for these six other girls! Her success at the county level means that she will go on to compete in the Northern England Gigafinal this July in Manchester, and after that the next step is the national stage. Could Abigail be a future National Chess Champion? We hope so – good luck, Abigail!
