London Junior Championships Saturday, December 09

The first part of the London Juniors saw 6 Berkshire players competing: 3 each in the Under 10 Major, and the Under 14 Major. Last year, James Adair won the Under 14 Minor event, and this season he moved up to the Major to finish in sole second place with 5 points from 6 rounds - a superb result. Only a point behind, George Tunstall was in 7th= place.

All three Berkshire players gained notable results in the Under 10 Major: Roy Zhang being the highest placed Berkshire player with 5 / 7 to share 6th place; Ryan Chen was only a half point behind, and Matthew Wadsworth a further half point.

The rest of the London Championships sections are held between Christmas and New Year.

Couldn't help noticing in the London Junior results web page that Andrew Adair, like his son, also finished in second place on his own in the under grade 90 tournament; Berkshire Under 11 team manager Chris Archer-Lock scored 3 / 6 in the very tough Open event.

Between Christmas and New Year, the second phase of the London Juniors included 5 Berkshire players. Matthew Wadsworth returned to Harrow to claim sole 3rd place in the Under 8 event, and also the best-placed Under 7 prize. James Holland also achieved a notable result in the Under 12 Championship, finishing 4th= with 6½ points from 9 rounds (4 wins, 5 draws, but no losses!).
