At the National Primary Schools Chess Championships run by English Primary Schools Chess Association (easier to say EPSCA than NPSCC) at Twickenham Prep school recently we had two teams:

U11 section: Arlo, Alfie, Cameron, Edward, Finn, Wilf 
U9 section: James H, Jesse, Joseph, Louie, Teddy, Theo 

Both teams battled brilliantly all day and showed a great many skills. The final result placed the U11 team just 1 place out of qualifying for the semi finals. They will have to wait and see if they get offered a place but the U9 team finished 3rd (out of 14 teams) and qualified for the event at Bristol or Camber Sands. Both results were fantastic. For some of our players, it was their first tournament whereas we were up against experienced players who are playing a chess competition lasting a full day like this every 1/2 term. Thank you to all the supporting parents too, without whom these teams could not have participated.
