On Sunday 18th May 2014, I played in the Kent Mega Final 3 at Tonbridge Girls Grammar School. The U9 competition was very close and after 6 exciting games, I was fortunate to win the U9 Supremo trophy with 5½ points following a play off.  

I would like to thank everyone who has coached me, Aces Sevenoaks coaches Krishna Shiatis and Rohan Shiatis, Michael Shahoud and all the coaches at the KJCA Aces training days including GMs John Emms and Chris Ward .

I would also like to thank everyone at the Claremont School Chess Club and my parents for their support and encouragement.
