Incredibly difficult day at Ashton with a number of those juniors who play Manchester league chess mixed in with the rest and a chess tutor somewhat under the weather!!
When you get poor Lawrence M and Austin Butterworth having to play for example the Oldham town team board 1 it is hard. Lots of our players took points off each other.
Well done to Sithun De Silva (best year 3), William Hardman-Elliott (best year 6), Lawrence Moustafa (2nd in yr 5), Nathan Li (2nd Secondary), Lucy Lowe (best yr 5 girl), Leon Li and Patrick Shaw who all qualified for the Megafinal. Fantastic effort.
Special mention to our newcomers Jessica Caton and Emily Winkler who both scored 2 out of 5.
For those who missed out you have another opportunity on Sat 27th Apr back at Ashton for the Last Chance Saloon. Let me know and I will sign you up.
