We had a great 4-way Essex Arena Battle Blitz contest this morning. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Brentwood School 81, KEGS 71, CJCC 70, Colchester Juniors 53.
Brentwood School got their revenge after losing a 22-board match 23-21 to KEGS on Thursday. Fantastic to have that many students giving up their evening to play.
Former CJCC players Nina and Max led Brentwood School to victory with 20 wins between them. Quite a few of our older players were playing for KEGS.
Well done to George - EvenNimbleCamel - for playing more games than anyone else and being CJCC's top scorer. We were so close to second!
