There were five sections for the junior chess congress held at Kirkham Grammar School on Sunday 17th November 2019. A damp and grey November day, but it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the 44 children who had turned up to play.
As with all the Lancashire Junior Congress events, the sections are not aged limited, all sections are based on ability. As a result, we had Lancashire U11 players in the Kings section playing some of the senior players. Three of the section winners won with a 100% record
