Saturday 10th March, and we are at Oldham Hulme Grammar School for the EPSCA Under-9 Northern Regional . Ten teams were originally scheduled for the day, however, Staffordshire pulled out leaving 9 teams to battle for the qualification spots in the final.
A great turnout for our first time at AKS Lytham Independent School for the recent Lancashire Junior Chess Congress. A great warm welcome from the school, excellent playing facilities and excellent facilities for the parents and guardians, as 50+ junior chess players battled it out in their respective sections. A special thank you to the school for making us feel so welcome, and the excellent facilities available. The restaurant food was excellent! The chess was good as well, and some excellent results all round.
