CLUB NIGHT REPORT: Thurs 14th June 2018
34 players down for a game of chess and some banter!
Tonight was the 3rd 5-Minute Grand Prix with 12 players taking part. Now it will come as no surprise that Mr Shafi won on the night. But the shock was it was not Declan but his old man! Imagine that, Paul Shafi beating his son to the winning line! Declan made sure it was a 1 – 2 for the Shafi`s, with Andy Rowe hanging in there in 3rd place.
