Yes @Jerrylolo,

A lot of young and upcoming Nigerian chess stars will be playing for the Lagos Leatherbacks. The League teams are city based. The Lagos Leatherbacks is made up of players who have some connection with Lagos. Live, work, or school in Lagos. If you play for the Yabatech chess club, you have fulfilled that requirement wink

Next, you will need a Chess.com account. It is free. If you play a lot of online chess you already know that.

Then come over to https://www.chess.com/club/lagos-leatherbacks-fan-club or Twitter @LagLeatherbacks or FB @LagLeatherbacks lets get to know you a little more. Who knows, during the league season, you might get substituted into a match and face a real grandmaster smiley

Cheers,

Match over. Week 1 done for us.

The Lagos Leatherbacks put up a great fight and even scored some upsets but lost the match. Special mention to Femi who made Grandmaster Maz sweat. Queen versus 2 rooks end game!

Can't wait for next week line up!
