In Galway at the weekend, BGS won the Irish Schools' Teams Bridge Championship, beating respected adversaries BRA, who have held the trophy for six years, into second place. The team, consisting of Wayne Somerville, Ian Jones (both Upper Sixth), Andrew Clegg (Year 12) and Lee Williams (Year 11), won all their matches and ended overall winners with 417 points, 68 ahead of BRA. This score exceeds last year's winning score by 75 points and is a formidable total.
