The annual Suffolk Junior Open took place yesterday at Woodbridge School. There was nearly a clean sweep for members of the Bury Knights JCC, who won five age-group titles outright, and shared two others:
Under 9 Aaron Saenz de Villaverde (4½/6)
Under 10 Anita Somton (6/6)
Under 11 Mario Saenz de Villaverde (6/6|
Under 12 Alex Sheerin (6/6)
Under 13 Rufus Easdale (shared)
Under 14 William Sait (5½/6)
Under 15 Patrick Gembis (shared)
Unsurprisingly, the team prize was won by Bury Knights, with their team consisting of the four boys, Aaron, Mario, Alex and William, who amassed a total of 22 points out of 24.
The Open section was won by Justin Tan, who also scored 6/6. With only eight entrants, this section was considerably weakened by the EACU First Team Championship, which also took place on Sunday.
