Glasgow clubs friendlies

Thank you to Paisley Chess Club and Bearsden Chess Club for playing home-and-away friendlies with us in November and December. This was a valuable introduction to competitive, over-the-board classical chess for our new members, and a welcome return to inter-club matches for others. The results of the four matches have been published by Chess Scotland:

Paisley vs Govanhill (08/11/21)

Govanhill vs Paisley (15/11/21)

Bearsden vs Govanhill (30/11/21)

Govanhill vs Bearsden (06/12/21)

As we await news on the potential restart of league systems, we would be pleased to hear from other local clubs who are interested in arranging a graded friendly in early 2022. Those interested are warmly invited to contact Derek at

Rhys McCrosson, Graeme McKinnon and Derek Rankine represented the club in the Renfrewshire Allegro Chess Congress on 12 December. The results are available here: major section and minor section.
