The Grunifeld Defence (aka Oxford University) win the 2018/19 FWS

The final match of the 2018/19 season was played this week and it saw The Grunifeld Defence, a team made up from Oxford University, lift the cup.

After winning the title last year (check out our crowning moment here), this year we reached the semifinal but lost to The Cowley Countergambits who then lost to The Grunifeld Defence.

Cowley only needed 1 win with the grading difference being a massive 58 points but they lost 6-0.

Congratulations to Oxford University who also won the first division with their very strong team.
