ROYSTON Chess Club has retained the Herts County League championship.

And it was a comfortable campaign for Royston.

The team picked up 21 points from a possible 24, to leave the opposition trailing.

And the club, bolstered by the return of International Master Lorin d'Costa, secured another league title with two matches to spare.

An unbeaten d'Costa and Norman Hutchinson helped see off nearest rivals Watford and Hertford.

Ben Morgan, Kevin Clark and Paul Kemp also played an important part in Royston's victory.

However, the club's second team were not so fortunate, as they failed to secure promotion.

But the third and fourth teams managed their highest league positions in recent years.

n The club ends its season on Monday with a handicap tournament at Royston Town Hall at 7.45pm.

Competitors are welcome.
