It was a close call but ...

QMGS retain the second division title for the 3rd year running! With KES and QMGS having won 2 matches in the division and drawn against each other it came down to a points decision. Overall QMGS won 2 more matches than KES and so just retain the trophy. Well done to the first team regulars; solid and dependable as ever! But also well to those who played in the first team for the first time this year and managed to win their games, your contribution really did matter in the end!

Chess Colours - Ben Nevett-Farman

Ben started and ended his chess playing career for QM on board 2 in the first team. To say he maintained an impeccable record would be an understatement, as he won every single game he played for the school. His high standards of play have only been matched by his sportsman like conduct and civil manner. He has represented the school exceptionally well in every way. I only regret not finding him sooner. Ben truly deserves his chess colours. (Ben - second from left in the photo above)

QMGS v King Edwards Five Ways

The final league matches of the season, for QM, took place at King Edwards Five Ways last Friday. The second team eventually managed to win 8 and a half to 3 and half after some very close and competitive matches. Well done to Dhiren Bahia and Amaron Singh who won both their games in their debut performances for the second team. Also, well done to Liam Berembuam for winning his match and for being the star performer in the second team this season.

It was a tough night for the fourth team who eventually lost 9 and a half to 2 and a half. However, well done to Farshad Mohammadi and Zain Ashraf for winning a game each.
