Congratulations to everyone in the Berkshire Under 9 team who competed on Sunday at Compton School. Despite having a below strength squad, due to several regulars competing elsewhere, our team put on a very good display. Lots of the children found themselves on higher boards than they would normally play and rose to the challenge. After a nail biting first round against Barnet, which we eventually won by one point, the children slowed down their playing and went on to win the second (Oxfordshire) and third round (Buckinghamshire) more comfortably. Despite winning all our rounds, we were denied first place by Barnet who scored 1 1/2 points more than us. Nevertheless we acheived a well deserved second place. Well done to Matthew Wadsworth, Anthony Zhang and Michael Gilbert who won all three of their matches.
