Broadstairs Chess Club’s Thanet and East Kent League matches for the 2023/24 season came to a victorious end on Tuesday 18th June 2024 with the Club winning the final of the Mick Croft Cup at and against Sandwich 3.5 to 1.5.

Congratulations to the team captain Paul Carfrae and to Manoj Natarajan, Chris Stampe, Samuel Marsden, and Paul Verrall. Broadstairs had played and knocked out Bridge and Margate in the earlier rounds with the help of Jasper Jeffs who wasn’t available for the final.

As we approach  the conclusion of various internal competitions and the club AGM next month (5.8.2024) which will bring to an end  the season, it becomes a time to reflect and of course to think about and plan for the 2024/25 season.

Overall, it was a successful season with the club fielding chess teams in the Miller Cup, Hargreaves Shield, Steele Cup, Walker Cup, and the  Mick Croft Cup. The Hargreaves Shield was again won by Broadstairs.

There is a lot to reflect on and to prepare for the AGM so more on that in a future website post.
