GLORNEY CUP, IRELAND, JULY 21-24TH

Dundee City was represented in this year’s Glorney Cup by Euan Dawson and Ben Volland. The event was held last week in Ireland at the Carrickdale Hotel and Country Club, Dundalk. The competition this year (as most years) was fierce with France, the Netherlands, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales competing. Scotland were the lowest graded team and were always going to find it tough and so it proved. After 5 rounds the championship was won on tie-break by France over the Netherlands. England came 3rd, Ireland 4th and Scotland a very creditable 5th above Wales. All the games can be found at the Glorney site on the CS home page and the scores can also be found separately on ‘Chess Results’. Both Euan and Ben scored a very creditable 1/4 against very tough opposition. Well done both.
