Another British Champion
I’m delighted to tell you that Chelmsford Chess Club’s
Elliot Cocks is the new British U16 Champion. His score of 5.5/7 put him half a
point ahead of a tough field (he was seeded 7th).
Before playing at the British Elliot represented England at the European Schools Championships in
and in the Glorney Cup so has not been short of match practice. Tomorrow
(Sunday) he starts in the U15 Championships and is midway through the Major Open.
Elliot was a key part of the Chelmsford A team who won the North Essex
Chess League this season and has been coming along to the adult club since he
started at KEGS. Back then I used to share chess ideas and interesting games
with him. These days it is the other way round.
Elliot also has a unique place at CJCC despite being too old
and too good to come along because he designed our poster.
