North Devon Chess Champions

Park Community School entered two teams into the DTSA North Devon Spring Chess Tournament on Friday 29th March.

Our A team won the competition with a record of four wins and one draw (the draw was against Park B team). Our B-Team came joint 3rd with Braunton A, Braunton B came second.

Both teams played exceptionally well especially as they are mainly Year 8s and had to play against 6th formers and Year 10/11s in some games. There were teams representing Ilfracombe, Braunton, Pilton, South Molton and Torrington .

A Team - Ahmad Aslam 8RW (Captain), Oliver Rawlinson 8NW, Jack Watton 8MR, Finley Carlyon 9PR
B Team - Edie Maytum 8MR (Captain), Tyler Dennis-Joy 8NB, Sethini Vanderbona 8MR, Alex Edwards 9NW
