New Clubs

#26 "Rookie": Irish News 26th October 1983

Chess is going from strength to strength, as proved by the formation of new clubs this year. Portaferry Chess Club meets in the local library every week, while the Holywood Social and Recreation Club would welcome friendly chess matches with other clubs to prepare for league chess next year. Interested club secretaries should ring Kevin Durston at Holywood 6055.

Belfast has two new clubs - the Civil Service Chess Club and the Andersonstown Chess Club. The former is in the Belfast & District 'C' League and meets every Wednesday night at the Maynard Sinclair Pavilion, Stormont. The latter meets on Sundays at 3 p.m. in St. Agnes' Parish Centre, Andersonstown Road.

If you are still at school, don't miss the Third Co. Down School Championships, held at the Teachers' Centre, Mount Crescent, Downpatrick on November 12th and 19th. There are four sections: Senior Boys and Girls, Junior Boys and Girls (for under 15s on 1/7/83), Minor Boys for under 13's and Minor Girls for under 14's. Phone M. Stone at Downpatrick 2870 for details.

Like last week, we feature below a pawn mate from the Williamson Shield, proving Lambe is outstanding in his field.
