The Essex Junior Chess Association ( organise much of the junior chess that takes place in Essex - Grand Prix tournaments, coaching days and county matches at U9, U11 and U14 level. They also loan their equipment to Richard Pert and me for the events we organise (

On Sunday 14th January is the next EJCA Grand Prix tournament - in Southend this time. On 4th February is the last of 3 invitational coaching days for the stronger Essex juniors.

Below is a photo taken from the last coaching day of a challenge blitz match between myself and fellow coach Tom Villiers. It was fun to play and the juniors enjoyed watching and adding their opinions from the sidelines. Congratulations to Tom on his well-deserved victory.
