Captain Chris walks the Gorki to success
Chris Thorne is captain of our Hackney Gorki team and has done a brilliant job in bringing our newest team to the edge of glory in only his second season playing for HCC. His sons Alex and Joe, along with a raft of other promising juniors and lower graded adults, make up the Gorki Squad. This season has been particularly good with a potential title-winning run of five wins and a draw out of the first six games.
Chris has enjoyed success over the board (W5 D2 L2) since he started playing in the 2016-17 campaign and we look forward to welcoming him to our teams in the higher divisions.
Here is his latest win, against Battersea on 14.3 (Chris has the Black pieces).
