Newsletter no.4 - Nov 2016 - Newham Lord Mayor's Show

 

CSC Newham at the Lord Mayor’s Show

 

 
   
 
   

On Sunday 10th July, Chess in Schools and Communities Newham supported the Newham Lord Mayor’s Show with a chess tent, where all comers could play throughout the day.

 

One of the stars of the Newham junior squad, Shahjahon Saidmurodov, made a big impression on everyone by giving a simultaneous display against members of the police force, fire and ambulance services, as well as council leader Ken Clark and Lord Mayor Sir Robin Wales who, we discovered at the inaugural event in Newham (see video), and then again in an online match with the Mayor of Sunrise in California, is an accomplished player himself.

In an impressive display, 10-year old Shahjahon defeated all his opponents, with the Mayor putting up the longest resistance in a close game.
