Bexhill Juniors start the new year in style!

Our Bexhill juniors were kicking off 2024 in style with some amazing chess at the SJC 4th Grand Prix of the season in Hastings, running alongside the International congress on January 1st.
In the under 11 minor section, Eszter scored 3/6 and took home the top girl trophy! Zac, playing in his very first sussex event finished on 3.5 from 6! Amazing! But dominating the section, with a super 5/6 was our very own Noah! Well done Noah!!
Harry and Timmy were playing in the under 11 major section and both had solid days finishing with 3.5 and 3 respectively.
Sebastian Merchant took 4/6 in the under 18 minor section and won third place!
Finally, in the under 18 major section were Rose, Sam and Luke. Rose scored 1.5, every point a hard fought for celebration in this incredibly tough section. Sam managed 2.5 from 6. But the superstar of the day was our very own Luke, with 4 wins and 2 draws, finished the day unbeaten on 5/6 and won the section!! An incredible achievement that included a win against the Sussex superstar Henry Adams (ECF 1941A)!!
Well deserved Luke! We are all so happy for you and so very proud!
An incredible day for our wonderful group of juniors! Hopefully a sign of things to come this year for our group of chess stars!
