Foyle chess players were made most welcome when they played against Lumen Christi College in a chess tournament on Wednesday 6th February. Although it was a close-fought competition, Foyle lost 9-8, with the last match ‘timing out’ during the Foyle player’s move.
Special mention must go to Gary McKinley, who won his match in ten moves, and also to Michael Hayden, who is instrumental in organising these events.
