Primary School Competition in Chelmsford

Today saw the local qualifying competition for the English Primary School Chess Association. 16 U11 teams and 4 U9 teams battled it out for the next stage of the competition - a weekend away in Camber Sands.

It was a pleasant day's chess and the players are to be commended for the fine spirit the competition was played it. From a CJCC view well done to Jake for scoring 5/5 for the U11 winners Brentwood Prep. Chelmsford schools Moulsham A (all 6 CJCC players) and St. Anne's (4 CJCC players) also qualified for the next stage.

Pushing Brentwood Prep at the top were Elm Green. Pictured below are their top two players Jerry and Harry Zheng. Harry has the U9s trophy he won at last weekend's South of England Championship.

More chess tomorrow with an Essex Junior Chess Association coaching day. It is no coincidence that many of the players from the top three U11 schools - Brentwood Prep, The Abbey Suffolk and Elm Green - attend these and other coaching events.

Best Wishes
