Owls flying high after dramatic win in the play-offs

Success for Forest Hall Owls in Play-offs

Forest Hall Owls earned promotion to Division 4 on Tuesday in a dramatic match. The following players have all played for the Owls this season and have contributed to their success: Morgan, Ethan, Jonathan S, Joe, Joshua, Felix, Ciaran, Chris, Jay, Jonathan L, Anthony, Phil and Yogam. It has been a real team effort which has enabled many juniors to shine in the Northumbria Chess League; playing against experienced adult opposition.

The play-offs match was a tense struggle against a very strong Tynemouth team. Ethan played an almost flawless game to secure the win at approximately 10pm. There was also an amazing victory by Ciaran. He came back from a rook down in a very exciting game to give the Owls the chance to win the fixture.

We are now looking forward to the challenge of playing in a higher division next season when there will be plenty opportunities for Forest Hall players to show off their talents on the chess board.
