Under 14 Team event: Berks, Surrey, Sussex Sunday, November 05

The latest under 14 team outing was a real test of character. Playing away in Guildford against two very strong teams (Sussex and Surrey), the young and understrength Berkshire team were always going to struggle. However, in true Berkshire style they didn't give up.

With four of the top eight players missing the pressure was raised for the whole team. The top half felt this the most gaining only 1 point in the top eight boards over the two rounds. It's a harsh game because this doesn't reflect the effort that everyone put in even if they came away with no points on the day.

The bottom four boards were outstanding, losing only 1 point from eight games. This meant we had 3 players with a 100% record - Ryan Chen, Zoe Goodwin and Edward Wise. Well done.

The final team scores were:

With everyone playing higher in the team than usual, this meant that their opponent was between 20 and 50 grading points higher than them. Well done to the whole team for giving it their all.
