Well done to the Staffordshire’s Under 11 team who finished third in yesterday’s EPSCA semi-final despite defaulting one board. Their success means the team goes through to the National Finals on 6 May.
The Staffordshire players were:
Edison Xu, Ivan Prikazchikov, Aaryan Singh, Krishan Patel, John Moughtin-Leay, Joe Hirst, Valentino Bisaccio, Sebastian Crawford, Jasmine Jones, Rajdev Singh Shoker, Tilly Snape, Aeddan Pope, Lily Brown, Sam Smith, Ranudi Premadosa, Dylan Rehman, Shivam Patel, Mia Sepe, and Bobby Pahal.
Five players won all their games and each of them finshed with scores of 3 out of 3. They are:
Edison Xu, Ivan Prikazchikov, John Moughtin-Leay, Mia Sepe, and Bobby Pahal.
Staffordshire finished the final round of yesterday’s Northern semi-final with a total of 34 points, our best score for some years.
The ten teams competing included Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Manchester, Mersyside, Tameside, Lancashire and Wirral.
Well done to the players, and thank-you to parents and organisers.
