Exmouth’s Latest Champion Crowned.

A little belatedly, maybe, but the Club’s latest champion, Club President Mark Abbott, received the Tempest Trophy from the 3-times previous winner, John Stephens, at the Club last night.

Later in the evening, John went down to a shock defeat in the current championship tournament at the hands of newcomer Oliver Wensley, both of them former Exmouth Junior Club members and used to play in the local Primary School Chess League.

Mark has been in good form throughout the year and on Thursday next plays Andy Dunne in the final of the Winter-Wood Tournament, played for by the Champions of clubs¬†affiliated to Devon C. C. A. Having already won the Club’s Championship and Knockout tournaments, this could be his 3rd trophy of 2010.
