A FEW years ago East Kilbride Chess Club was invited into the Dunbartonshire League.
Going in under the name of East Kilbride Wanderers, the team is made up of a pool of all East Kilbride chess members.
They have now “wandered” their way to promotion by winning the 2008-2009 Dumbarton and District Division 2 title.
Delighted team captain,Paul Denham said that all the members deserve credit for their efforts over the season.
He continued: “The team were unbeaten, going into the last match where we needed at least a draw for the title, so I picked Alan Jelfs, Craig Miller, Frankie Murray and Tony Dunlop, four of our strongest players.
“After losing the first two games, it was looking precarious. But we fought back and got the draw we needed.”
Paul added: “A local engraver is going to be busy, as a total of 15 club members played one or more games for the Wanderers”.
