Many congratulations to MGS Junior School pupil Ethan Gardiner, who represented the England Under-12 Chess team in the Glorney Gilbert International Chess Tournament that took place in Ireland.

The event has a long history; it has been running continuously since 1949, and this year all of the games were broadcast live on the Internet.

Teams of six players from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and the Netherlands competed, and Ethan helped the English team to finish second, winning the runners-up trophy.

Well done, Ethan.
