Essex Championship trophy

We had two guest appearances at the club this week. Essex Chess Association President Ivor Smith came down with the Essex Chess Championship trophy to present it to (now) 4 time winner Richard Pert. The trophy is nearly 100 years old and made of solid silver so Ivor showed great courage bringing it along.

Below is a picture of Ivor with Richard and Ivor surrounded by children keen to know more about the trophy. Also a selection of our players posing alongside it. Next week Ivor is hoping to bring it along again to show the older players (Richard has decided it is safer with Ivor than in the same house as his son Max).

Good luck to our players off to represent Essex in the National U11 finals in Nottingham on Saturday.


Best Wishes
