3Cs have begun their challenge for 4NCL honours, with three teams in action this season. In Division 1 our first team started with a comfortable 6.5 - 1.5 win against Spirit of Atticus although they then lost 5-3 to a White Rose team including 3 Grand Masters and 4 International Mastes.

In Division 3 North, the 3Cs' second team recorded two victories, both by 4.5-1.5 against Enniscorthy and Bradford Knights B, whilst our third team, in which we use many of our younger players in order to get them used to competative chess at a higher level, lost their two games, again both by 4.5-1.5, against Manchester Manticores B and Holmes Chapel.

Although many of the teams in the 4NCL are "manufactured" sides for whom top players are bought in just to represent them for that particulart event, 3Cs are proud that of the 40 boards played by our club in the first two rounds of the competition, 34 of them were occupied by genuine 3Cs' players who have progressed through the ranks and been coached at the club.

The next round of matches are on the weekend of 13/14 January 2018.

3Cs chess club continue their sponsorship of a young boy living in Gambia who had very little chance of both an education and climbing out of the poverty trap. It costs the club a total of just £20 per year - from funds donated by our club's own young players - to give hope and prospects of a better life for him and his family.

YUSUPHA DRAMMEH we believe was 7 years old in 2015 when we began our sponsorship which currently lasts for six years. The club receive updates from Abuko school where Yuspha attends whilst the collage, pictured on the wall of the 3Cs club as a constant reminder to our youngsters of the assistance they are providing, shows the school and area where he lives.
