This is David Eggleston’s second year with CSC, for whom he teaches chess at three schools in Consett. He plays in tournaments whenever possible, and has recently gained his International Master title.


David is glad to do a job he enjoys and the children he teaches are always excited about playing chess. They are looking forward to reaching a standard when they can start to play in tournaments. David has just written a book: “Hacking up the King,” expected to be published by Mongoose Press in 2014.
