A remarkable day at Ashton Chess competition. In the year 7 to 11 group Sithun De Silva (a year 6!) won the whole event (4 out of 5) having scored no more than 2 previously.
Paddy Shaw after a slow start finished well to win his last two games to finish on 2.
Rishi Ghosh (online student) played his first ever over the board competition scored 1.5 , found the transition to real pieces a bit of a challenge!
In the junior event Leon Walker after pretty much no chess in two years scored an amazing 5 out 6 to take 2nd place.
Really great to see Ethan Lancaster there as well. A foot taller and a deep voice now!!
Well done all.
