WD v Honved Budapest

Mar 29 2020

On April 15th and 16th 1989 in Edinburgh the Wandering Dragons Chess Club staged the biggest match in the club's short history, as Chris Donkin reports.

Dragons 2 Beat Pentland Hills 3½-2½

Mar 11 2020

The Dragons second team faced their last match in Division 1 having played well all season but without the rewards in points. This time fortune favoured the Dragons when one of the Pentland Hills team had to call off due to a family health issue. While we wish a speedy recovery to our friend in chess, we were happy to start the match 1-0 up. Although Adam knew he did not have an opponent, he turned up anyway to be sure.

Corstorphine 3 Comprehensively Conquered

Mar 6 2020

The match on Monday night ended in a 4-2 win for the C-team, with three wins (all with white) and two draws.

We meet on Tuesday evenings at Pilrig Bowling Club, have teams in the Edinburgh League, the Edinburgh Allegro, the SNCL and the Spen's Cup, and run various internal tournaments for our members.
