Under 9s Town Team Results - Oldham 2nd place finish
Final result. Oldham finished in an amazing 2nd place without 3 of our good players including our board 1. Cheshire and North Wales repeated the under 11s performance from last week and took 1st place. It was great to beat Nottinghamshire to 2nd place after they beat us last week. Manchester finished 4th, Tameside 5th, Wirral 6th, Staffordshire 7th and Lancashire 8th.
Sithun (on board 4) finished with 2.5 out of 3, Leon also scored 2.5 points on board 11 and Jake 1 point on board 15.
We must remember Jake and Leon are only year 3 when all but one of the rest are year 4 so even more impressive.

3rd place for Oldham in ESPCA Under 11 County Championships North Zone
Amazing day for the Oldham under 11 town team. 3rd place overall across 20 boards, only beaten by Cheshire and North Wales and Nottinghamshire. Leicestershire and the Wirral also qualify. Rest are out. Grand final is Sat 28th March in Warwickshire when all the major southern counties will play.
Lawrence Moustafa (board 6) and Sithun De Silva (board 12) scored a magnificent 2.5 out of 3. Paddy Shaw (board 7) and Dylan Crothers (board 13) both scored 0.5 out of 3 but 3 fantastic games against some of the more difficult counties. A fabulous medal and certificate for all the team.
