Leicestershire U11’s qualify for the finals of the EPSCA County championships!

15 club members were represented in the 20 board Leicestershire U11 team that made the long journey up to Cheadle Hume on Sunday 8th of March.

It was a tough and close competition, with Leicestershire finishing in 4th place with 31 points to qualify for the finals which will take place in Solihull on the 28th of March.

  1. Cheshire & N Wales 50
  2. Nottingham 38
  3. Oldham 35.5
  4. Leicestershire 31
  5. Wirral 29
  6. Tameside 28.5
  7. Staffs 28.5
  8. Lancashire 14
  9. Manchester 14

Our qualification was not confirmed until the very last result of the whole event. Lindsay Pyun completed an excellent game, winning her opponents centre pawn and expertly converting this advantage through the endgame. This received a round of applause from all the spectators, and sealed Leicestershire’s place in the finals.

Special mention also to Joshua Tang, Aarav Sinha and Madhav Eradi who all earned maximum points over the day. Six more players scored two wins out of three. Several of our younger players also turned out (including Sam on his birthday!) and we look forward to seeing them in the team in future matches. Many thanks to all the parents and helpers who made this possible and to Julian Tang for organising the team on the day. We look forward to the finals in Solihull on Saturday 28th of March.
