Title Glory for Double Kings Queen's

April 21st proved to be a night of sweet success for Queen’s Chess, with the University club sealing a superb Ulster League double in stunning last day fashion.

On an evening billed as “Grand Slam Tuesday”, QUB defeated their nearest challengers in Division 1 to retain the title of Ulster Champions. Simultaneously, in the same corridor of the University’s Peter Froggatt Centre, QUB B saw off their closest rivals in dramatic last minute fashion to lift Division 2’s John Strawbridge Trophy.

This rare Division 1 and 2 double triumph was last achieved by the University way back in 1969. The club’s retention of the Division 1 title (and coveted Silver King trophy along with it) means that QUB are also celebrating consecutive top flight victories for the first time since 1970.
