Tuesday saw Witham chess team play their first ever match against Kings Grammer School in Grantham, as their senior team are national champions we knew the opposition would be tough!
We started off well with the first 2 matches to finish resulting in wins for Robert Tombs and Ewan Rodell unfortunatley the opposition was just to good on the remaining boards and we managed just one further win from Alex Spragg.
Everyone enjoyed our first ever chess match tea afterwards and we are already looking forward to a return match in the new year.
A big thank you to Poppy Wraith and Richard Tomlinson who stepped in at the very last minute due to sickness, they did exceptionally well against much older players.
