Thanks to the efforts of new chess enthusiasts, Lewis Matheson, Robbie Wiliamson, Connor Watson and Jamie Stout Stonehaven Chess Club has started up again after a lengthy break from 2020-22 largely due to the pandemic.

At present, the club meets in Drumlithie Inn on Wednesday nights from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The 2023-24 club championship has just been completed. The winner was Paddy Coffield (5 points), followed closely by Thomas Stidolph (4.5 points). Jamie Stout was third with 3.5 points. 

The club takes part in the Scottish National Chess League at the moment and we are looking forward to the North East Scotland Chess League starting up again next season.

The club welcomes new members including children – those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 

If you are interested call Paddy on 07917 177669 or Lewis on 07540 995569.
