With other chess events happening on the say day there was a low turnout for the U18(2), U14(1) and U12(2) sections. No choice but to combined the three sections into one. After 4 rounds Rachel Davey was a point clear (3 wins and 1 bye). In the final round all that was required was a draw to win the tournament, and seeing that her opponent on 2 also needed a draw to qualify for the final, Rachel intended to get into a good position and offer a draw. In fact she blundered a piece and had to fight a very long game to obtain a draw. Rachel Davey won the U12-U18 section 4½ out of 5, but correctly only given the U12 trophy.
