Kent Girls U11 team at the National Finals

Congratulations to the Kent U11 Girls’ team that played in the EPSCA Inter County Finals on 23 March 2019 at Grace Academy in Solihull.  

The young team of Roxolana, Vaidehi, Anya, Tessa, Nikita, Krisha, Violet, Scarlet, Alina, Georgina, Chloe, Aoife, Grace and Maitreyi played some determined chess and all enjoyed the day.  Particular mention goes to Scarlet and Alina who both won all their games.  However, all the girls gained points and should be proud of their efforts over a long day.  

Thanks to our Coach GM Chris Ward whose enthusiasm and words of wisdom sustained the team throughout the day.  

Also a big thanks to our retiring Girls team manager, Andrew Bruce, who has led the girls for a number of years and expertly supported, arranged travel and inspired the teams over this time.  All at KJCA are grateful for his time and efforts to support our young chess players.
