Chess Weekend and Twitter

This has been a full chess weekend sandwiched by chess at Elm Green (Friday) and St Cedd's tomorrow (Monday).

Saturday saw the local qualification stage for the National Primary Schools Chess Championship with 26 teams from Essex and London. CJCC players represented St Anne's, St Cedd's and Moulsham.

I was with St Cedd's who did splendidly to qualify for the National semi-finals in the U9 and U11 competition. CJCC's Maheep (Year 6) and Sid (Year 2) led the teams. Moulsham U9's did even better and finished 2nd overall with CJCC's Sachin and George on the top two boards.

Sunday saw the latest Coaching Day organised by the Essex Junior Chess Association. The EJCA are responsible for much of the junior chess in Essex. They can be found at and @essexchess.

I've also started to tweet on CJCC and the junior chess I'm involved with @robinslade65.

In action from Sunday below are two CJCC players. Hugo (Year 1) had a full weekend as he was part of the St Cedd's U9 team on Saturday as well which was his first chess competition.

 Hugo about to move against Ruqayyah. Neili is poised with her pencil behind.

Joshua (on the right) against Neili's brother Viru. Fellow CJCC player Xander is next to Joshua.

Best Wishes
