Junior match versus Chepstow
Our new, and first annual junior chess match against Chepstow juniors was held yesterday evening at the club.
It was a six a side match, each player getting two games, with a lovely buffet at half time.
After the 1st round the score was 3-3, and after the 2nd round the final score ended up 6-6.
This is the first time our juniors have all played together in a match but for sure it will not be the last!
A special mention goes to Noah Berridge who made his debut for the club. In his 2nd game, Noah held his nerve in a very close match, and beat an opponent graded just under a 100. A very promising start for Noah.
A huge shout out goes to Henry and Chris for supporting the event for the whole evening, offering coaching and analysis to all.
Also a big thank you to Mike. B, Ian. P and Jerry. H for also coming along and supporting the event.
It was a lovely evening, but our juniors were still as competitive as ever. Most of the Chepstow team make up the bulk of The Welsh Dragons 4 NCL team and tough nuts to crack they were. There were some very close games going right down to the wire with quite complicated and unclear endgames.
Finally, I would like to thank the legend that is Geoff Gammon, for being the M.C for the evening and also holding the very popular "Geoff's quiz corner" in the bar!
