The U9 EPSCA Zone South qualifier took place in Basingstoke on Saturday the 8th of March. Berkshire's opponents were Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Sussex, Wey Valley, and Wiltshire.
In the first round our team scored 8 points, loosing only on three boards. The second round was less successful with 5 points only, so it was quite important to perform well in the last round in order to get medals. And this is what boys and girls managed to do in a brilliant way, getting 9½ points out of 12, and not losing to strong Wey Valley and Sussex teams. This allowed us to finish third with 22½ points, only 2½ points behind Sussex (2nd) and 5½ points behind Wey Valley (1st). Well deserved bronze medals, and qualification to the EPSCA U9 final in Nottingham on the 26th of April.
