This event took place at Thorpe House School, Norwich on Saturday 13th March. The final table looked like this:
Our relatively inexperienced young players found the competition at this level quite challenging, particularly against the London area teams, although Tarik did beat the Barnet board 4 in this head to head game. Sailesh was also impressive on Board 2 demonstrating some clever tactical ideas which produced a creditable 50% score from his games. Many team members lost only narrowly in hard fought battles. As many of our team are Year 3's we can look forward to having a more experienced squad for 2011, while Year 4 members will hope to secure a place in our Lincolnshire Under 11 team next year.
Finally thank you to our captain, Louis Croves and our dedicated squad of under 9's for their commitment and efforts this year. Thank you also to parents and helpers without whose help and support Lincolnshire would not have been able to field a team.
