Essex Megafinal

This weekend was the Essex Megafinal and it was great to see 18 players from our club there (plus Angelo, Elliot and Findlay from the adult club in Chelmsford). For some of these players it was their first ever tournament. Out of these Lucas deserves a special mention for scoring 3.5/6 and winning a rosette.

To qualify for the South of England Gigafinal a score of 4/6 was needed. Many congratulations to Max (5/6), Nina (5/6), Jerry (4.5/6) and Sebastian (4/6). Max and Nina ensured family harmony by being joint winners of the U8 section and each took home a trophy. From the adult club Elliot and Findlay both scored 6/6 in the U14 and U11 sections respectively.

Olga also won a trophy as the highest scoring girl in her section and no less than 9 of our players finished on 3.5/6 (all winning a rosette but missing out on qualification by half a point).

Hopefully we’ll have a photo of Max, Nina and Olga with their trophies to add but for now we’ll settle for some photos from the club this week of the Essex Championship Trophy.
