Chelmsford EJCA Tournament 8th October

Saturday 8th October saw the Essex Junior Chess Association Grand Prix tournament in Chelmsford. It was great to see so many past and present CJCC players taking part.

Pride of place for CJCC went to our 3 trophy winners – Harry, Olga and Nina. Harry scored 6/6 in the U8s to beat Olga (5/6) into 2nd place. Nina also scored 5/6 to finish 2nd in the U10s. KEGS player Ryan Smith who attends the adult club in Chelmsford won the U18 Minor with 5.5/6. This was particularly impressive because Ryan was lower graded than all 6 of his opponents!

Altogether there were 28 current CJCC or Chelmsford Chess Club players taking part. Most of these players can be very proud of the chess they produced. I’d like to give a special mention to Josh who did the two things I most like to see – had great fun on and off the board and played at the very limit of his ability.

Full results will appear at

Best Wishes
